When Box CISO Laksmi Hamspal and BMO Director of Information Security Services Laura Payne struck up a conversation at a recent security conference in Toronto, the connection was immediate.

These two women not only shared a passion for cyber security in a space still dominated by men, they also quickly found common ground on their thoughts about the use of the cloud, the joys and challenges of business travel, and the importance of their own commitment to bringing women into tech.

During a conference break, ITWC was able to capture their conversation (with their permission, of course).

In the eight-minute chat, Lakshmi asks Laura about a number of issues, including banks and the public cloud, the power of gamification, and how to inspire young women to choose a career in tech.
