Sandra Leiterman, managing director of the UA Little Rock Cyber Arena, knows how important it is to inspire girls who are interested in studying careers in technology. The professional industry has a limited number of women in the field, and many girls lose interest during the formative junior high and high school years. That's what Leiterman is hoping to change during an Empowering Women in Cybersecurity Summit. 'Women currently only represent 11% of the cybersecurity field, so we hope events like this will inspire girls who are interested in cybersecurity and technology careers to pursue their dreams,' she said.
