About me

Brenda is a Zambian born global citizen and traveller, having lived in Zimbabwe, and South Africa. She pursued a Bachelor of Computers and Information Sciences at Monash University (South African campus). Her curiosity and passion for computers and cybersecurity arose wanting to find out what makes people do the things they do and use the technology they use. She studied the Master in Cybersecurity at IE where she discovered that Cybersecurity is a field that is new and not many women are in this industry. "I wanted to define these odds again in a predominantly male industry and boosting the girl child education in STEM industries".
