A recent (ISC)² study reported that in 2018, women made up 24 percent of the global cybersecurity workforce, an increase of 13 percent from 2017. Though the number might seem small, it is mighty: more women are joining a field that has traditionally been dominated by men, and they are seeking and asserting themselves at the top of the leadership pyramid. Anne Marie Zettlemoyer of Mastercard is one of those individuals.
Zettlemoyer is Vice President of Security Engineering at Mastercard, the multinational financial services corporation, headquartered in New York, with more than 13,000 global employees in more than 105 offices across the world. She is responsible for Mastercard’s security by developing effective and sustainable solutions that can enable millions of customers to “transaction” safely.
