Securing your core network in the future
I was recently at a similar network security event.

Based on experience gained elsewhere, Operators need to secure their core network as much as any devices in the packet switched world, as otherwise the whole network could bew compromised, creating unprecedented outages, causing tarnished reputations at board level.  Please see this interesting blog regarding what Operators should consider:

Right for EE but maybe not for everyone
What became apparent during the day at the conference was that while EE has a very specific network security strategy, which it managed to devise and implement quickly, other operators will have completely different approaches depending on their vendor partners, nature of backhaul, ability to invest in and deploy IP sec, and so on. 

A lot to learn from the early movers!!

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
