Meetings, especially in the cybersecurity realm, can sometimes feel like a stroll through a jargon jungle. There's a lot of "phishing" but not the kind that requires a fishing rod. There's talk of "firewalls," but nobody's trying to keep warm. To make our ventures through this linguistic labyrinth a tad more enjoyable, I've created a Cybersecurity Bingo Card. Loaded with popular terminologies—from the straightforward "DNS" to the all-too-relatable "Sorry, was on mute"—this card will help you decode the tech talk and bring a competitive edge to your meetings. Remember to play fair: no "proxy" players allowed, and don't just mark "threat" because someone side-eyed you for stealing the last donut. Dive in, have fun, and may the best jargon-juggler win!
We've all sat in meetings where we wished we had a bingo card for the phrases being thrown around. Here's one that captures many of the ones that I hear. Now, I'm not saying that I haven't (or don't) occasionally use one of these, but hopefully never enough that I am the main contributor to completing your bingo card.
Study after study shows the myriad ways girls are systematically discouraged from pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects. Teachers, parents, and peers, often unconsciously or subtly (sometimes not so subtly) persuade girls that STEM pursuits are unsuited to them and that they’ll fail if they try. So they don’t. So what can we do to fix it?
