A fast-growing tech field that welcomes women
Forbes Magazine (11/12/14)  Anne Fisher

About half of those working in data privacy are female, and they often earn more than their male peers. As business and government keep gathering staggering amounts of data and putting it to work, devising ways to protect it from hackers is a bigger, more complicated headache with every passing day.
