From helping to grow Cisco’s portfolio of security products to more than $1 billion in revenue to leading security at Airbnb, Vijaya Kaza has seen cybersecurity grow from a niche topic to a core technology focus.
For Kaza, this means a career in security is now a career on the cutting edge. “The best part of security is that every new technology brings new security challenges, along with new innovations to solve those challenges. I can’t think of any other field that is so exciting.”
Kaza spoke with Riviera Partners to share insights from her security career about effective leadership, the importance of making a fast decision, and how women in tech can navigate difficult periods in their careers.
