Calling all women in security technology

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

In the March issue of Security Systems News we launched a new series of stories dedicated to Women in Security Technology. It's a topic I've written about frequently. Here's a blog I wrote last May when I was at PSA-TEC and interviewed IST's Christine Lanning (who was also subsequently featured in our Women in Security feature in November.)

We decided to formalize the topic of Women in Security Technology into a series last month after I interviewed  Ellen Cargill, CTO for video surveillance provider Scallop Imaging. Here's that story in case you missed it.

Since I wrote that story I've heard from a few people with suggestions of women to interview for the series, so I'm happy to have some interviews lined up and I'm looking for more. If you know a woman who works in a technical/technology role in the physical security industry who would be perfect for this series, please email me at mentwistle@securitysystemsnews.com
