Jane Frankland’s new book, In Security, offers practical tips and advice for women looking to work in Cybersecurity, for women already in Cybersecurity, and for men and women who want to help fix the gender gap.

What Books Should You Read ?

October 26, 2017

Over the different stages of my life, there have been many times when a book helped me focus in the right directions and get my motivation and strength back. There were also days where the only activity that could release my stress was reading. And, it is amazingly great that in Singapore, we have this library as well, where you can just grab a book or eight 😊 ! It was always super empowering and inspiring, especially for someone who is building his own business.

Undeniably, books are part of a female empowerment journey as they should be. Women sharing their own experiences, successes, failures, and achievements allow us to relate to our lives, and overcome encountered obstacles. For my journey, reading was always the activity that would teach me the most, relax me, and bring very good new insights for my entrepreneurial career.
