The HackerNoon editorial team has launched this interview series with women in tech to celebrate their achievements and share their struggles. We need more women in technology, and by sharing stories, we can encourage many girls to follow their dreams.
Hi, Jaspreet Kaur here. I work in the field of cyber security as a researcher, faculty, blogger, and consultant. My major areas of interest include blockchain security, network security, and application security, but I'm also interested in working on other aspects of cyber security.
I've various duties as a guest lecturer at the Sardar Patel University of Police, Security, and Criminal Justice in Jodhpur (IN), as a PhD scholar at the Indian Institute of Technology in Jodhpur (IN), and as a blogger for the William and Mary Blockchain Lab, Hackernoon, Medium, and Cybrary. Despite this, I have worked at a number of other universities throughout my career, including HBTU Kanpur (IN), IGDTUW Delhi (IN), PEC Kanpur (IN), and PSAT Kanpur (IN).
I am also a member of various research communities including N2women, ACM-W and many more, and wrote various articles in conferences and journals. I'm also the recipient of a number of academic accolades and scholarships. I am a firm believer in the exchange of ideas. Feel free to contact me if you want to share your opinions or need assistance with cyber security. I am delighted to assist.
My social network handles are:
This is a field that has piqued my interest since elementary school. I completed my higher studies in this field for that objective. I want to learn more about this field and share what I've learned with others.
Every aspect of cyber security fascinates me, but right now I'm concentrating on blockchain security (Advanced and Emerging Technology).
There is no exact answer to this question. Because every technology has advantages and disadvantages, some technology may be appropriate right now but may or may not be appropriate in 10 years, while another earlier decade technology may or may not be appropriate right now due to its flaws.
I enjoy traveling and networking with other individuals for the purpose of exchanging knowledge.
The greatest challenge, in my opinion, is not to explore. Right now, there is a range of options available. Simply remove the obstacles. Continue to collaborate or network with others. There are persons that can assist you in pursuing your dreams.
There are a variety of scenarios. Every situation, however, has a remedy. All you have to do now is meet with folks who share your interests and can make relevant recommendations.
In my opinion, there is no such thing as failure; instead, there is always the opportunity to grow.
Just learn and move ahead.
There are plenty, but one of the most recent is being named one of the Top Indian Women Influencers in Security 2022.
As everyone is aware, there is a gap. However, it can be reduced by doing small things like not hesitating, breaking down barriers, forming networks and sharing your expertise, and exploring new things. There are many people who share your values and can help you. Be self-assured and continue to study.
My idol is Vandana Verma Ma'am. She serves on the OWASP Global Board of Directors as Vice-Chair. Her technical skills and professionalism inspire me to pursue a career in this field.
As I previously stated, start with modest steps such as not hesitating, breaking down your boundaries, continuing to study, and forming networks. These are all efforts to keep you ahead in your field.
