The Women in Cyber community is where:

  • Any question can be asked—difficult ones and the one that you’re convinced everyone knows the answer to except you.
  •  A path for your version of success is paved. Through coaching, mentorship, and friendship, all doors are open.
  • Everyone is part of the community. From the most recent hire to the most senior member and our allies, we all contribute and learn from each other.
  • You’re encouraged to boldly accept a next-level challenge, even though you have the jitters. Lean on us; we have your back.
  • You are celebrated! Only you have your skills, your background, your point of view. Our community is lucky to have you.


Supporting Women in Cyber security goes beyond simply ensuring more women have a seat at the table; it’s about strategically supporting the long-term growth and development of women professionals in the Cyber security domain.

Meet our Women in Cyber

In the stories of these representative women, you’ll get a glimpse of how our Cyber practice helps ensure that every member is accepted, represented, and supported. 

Kathy Cruz

Director, Sacramento, CA

"An important part of my life outside of work is bringing my KPMG skills to the Gentle Barn Foundation. The foundation provides a sanctuary for severely abused and neglected farm animals who are too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories. My current position, as well as past CIO responsibilities, allow me to contribute to the non-profit in multiple meaningful ways."

"The question, “Where are you from?” has always been tricky for me to answer. I’m of Indian descent, but I was born in Tanzania and immigrated to the U.S. when I was 12 years old. I feel strongly connected to all three countries, and a part of me feels at home in each of them.”

“In every interaction with my clients, I work to shift the negative perception of security to an essential pillar of the success of their business. I love to see that perception change over time. I witnessed that shift when I worked at the United States Postal Service, delivering cyber security solutions that safeguard our nation’s mail systems, and again working with KPMG clients on Identity and Access Management (IAM).”

"As a campus hire, I never thought I’d have so many opportunities to branch out at KPMG. Career agility allowed me to carve out my niche and own my career, thanks to those who mentored and advocated for me along the way."

"Because my interests are diverse, my formal education pursuits have been varied. I taught myself video editing and production in high school. And continued to build on that when I went to college. I graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in International Relations (Global Business) - Finance Track. I also earned minors in Applied Computer Security at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and Cinematic Arts at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.”

“My career with KPMG goes back to 2011 – when I started on KPMG UK's apprenticeship program as a fresh-faced 19-year-old. It was my first professional job, and I've been here ever since. I've stayed with the firm because of the personal and professional growth opportunities that I've been able to seize — including the support that KPMG has provided me with in moving to the US and for sponsoring my bachelor's degree in Computing and Information Technology (while working full time).”

“I come from a tiny town in India: Jodhpur in Rajasthan. Opportunities there were not ample for all. I was lucky to have a supportive family that helped me dream big and enabled me to achieve those dreams. I feel both humbled and grateful as I look back on my life. Since I joined KPMG directly from campus 16 years ago, my professional journey has been a series of open doors. But MOST importantly, it’s been an ideal fit because the KPMG values resonate with me as they reflect the same principles central to my family."
