Niloofar Howe

Chief Strategy Officer, RSA

As chief strategy officer of RSA, Niloofar Howe is responsible for the growth and health of one of the premier business enterprise cybersecurity firms in the world. A Harvard Law School graduate, Howe also spent time as chief strategy officer for digital security company Endgame and as managing director and operating partner at Paladin Capital Group, an investment firm. Her advice for women in a mostly male tech workforce? Don’t indulge talk about how hard it is for women to make it. “Ignore it,” she said. “Those issues exist in most industries, especially ones that are male-dominated— law, banking, finance, etc. Human beings are flawed, and so any organization run by us will be inherently flawed. That’s OK. Don’t focus on flaws because there is no perfect organization. Instead, live at the intersection that maximizes your ability to work on things that excite you and people who inspire you.”
