Women in Cybersecurity – Day 3
In recognition of International Women’s Day 2019, we are spotlighting some of the women who comprise Zscaler’s international workforce. These women were selected for their passion for their work, their contributions to their teams, and their support of the Zscaler values and vision.
We are pleased to introduce you to two of our honorees, and we are grateful that they are part of the Zscaler family.
Hina Chikarsal, Sr. Manager, Value Creation
When Hina joined Zscaler in December 2010, she had been working for a manufacturing company in India. Today, she works at Zscaler headquarters in San Jose and says, even after eight years, she continues to learn and explore new challenges every day. She credits her husband with supporting her and guiding her throughout her career, continually inspiring her to take up new opportunities. Hina has had a lifelong interest in science, particularly biology, and dreamed of opening a holistic healing center one day, using natural remedies to restore people’s health. For now, she satisfies her desire to improve people’s health by teaching yoga, while doing her part to bring holistic security to enterprise IT. She loves to experiment in the kitchen, trying new recipes, and she’s an avid reader, particularly fond of ancient Indian books. We are so fortunate to have had Hina in the Zscaler family for so long. She’s a deep well of knowledge and an esteemed ally on (at least) two continents.
Rym Sullivan, RSM France – Major Accounts
Rym entered the world of cybersecurity by chance through a blind testing day with McAfee back in 2004 and has stayed in the field ever since. She joined Zscaler in 2016 and, in addition to working closely with customers, says one aspect of her role that she always enjoys is staying up to date on evolving threats and market trends. Fun fact: Rym and her husband met in a body combat class, punching and kicking their way into each other’s hearts. They have two children, each pursuing a range of activities with passion, and Rym enjoys supporting them and encouraging them to achieve the success they are striving for. When she was young, Rym wanted to be a psychoanalyst. She sought to understand people and help them understand themselves. At Zscaler, we understand how fortunate we are to have Rym on our team in France. She is dedicated, professional, and, after 15 years, brings a wealth of knowledge about IT security to her customers and colleagues.
Congratulations, Hina and Rym!
Each day of the week leading up to International Women’s Day—March 8, 2019—Zscaler will introduce women of Zscaler whose lives, locations, and roles are diverse but who share a commitment to a world where information can be securely accessed no matter where it lives.
