Most people recognize the importance of mentorship, but in the national security field, it can be especially critical to success. Colonel Candice Frost, commander of the Joint Intelligence Operations Center at U.S. Cyber Command, has spoken and written about this topic.

  • She recommended looking for a mentor who is open and willing to learn and thinking about specific goals before talking to one.
  • After facing barriers when starting in the Army, Frost now mentors other women, especially in cybersecurity. She said Cyber Command is working to increase awareness across the country about opportunities in government.
  • She said women do not always know about opportunities available to them in national security and cyber and sometimes experience imposter syndrome when asking for a mentor.
