ISG Opens Doors for Women in Cybersecurity...and Beyond

ISG Opens Doors for Women in Cybersecurity...and Beyond


International Women's Day 2024

Invicta is working hard to close the gender gap in cybersecurity, where women have historically had very low representation.  According to a 2017 Price Waterhouse Coopers report, women's share in the US cybersecurity field was only 14%, compared to 48% across the general US workforce - and only 1% of female cybersecurity workers are in senior management positions. We think women are critical to our mission, and we strive to have a diverse workforce that reflects the unique backgrounds of the organizations we serve. On International Women's Day, we're proud to introduce you to just a few of the women that help make our company successful. Join us in celebrating these accomplished women that we literally couldn't operate without!

Paige Meade  

Paige leads Invicta's Proposal and Marketing efforts, serves as Internal ISO Quality Management Representative, and lends desktop publishing and graphic design assistance across many of our projects. She brings more than 23 years of experience in the government sector as Proposal and Marketing Director for multiple companies and Vice President of Growth for an SDVOSB, as well as Technical Writing SME, Event Marketing Director, and other diverse roles. She is also an award-winning speaker and victim advocate who gives back through various community and state programs.

Paige is the mother of 19-year-old twins, and in her spare time she likes to make custom stained glass creations (see that guitar? Stained glass!), bake sourdough bread, and torture herself in hot yoga. What she loves most about Invicta is the camaraderie: “It feels like we’re all part of a highly collaborative, wildly intelligent team working toward a common goal – I feel truly valued for what I bring to the table for the first time in a really long time!"

Nicole Noble

Nicole Noble functions as a Project Manager for Invicta, where she helps keep multiple and varied projects on track. Nicole has 30+ years in IT and over 10 years of experience in Project Management.

Prior to coming to ISG, Nicole worked for various Nashville based companies in Program Management and International Project Management Roles. What she likes most about working for ISG is the strong military work ethic. “I’ve never been in the military, but all of our engineers who have amaze me daily.”

Recently, Nicole embarked on an ambitious journey to open Back to the Gypsy, a retail store in Neosho, MO that offers a fine selection of unique products from artisans all over the world. She also manages a hometown rock band, and we've heard she also has a lifelong affinity for '80's hair bands!

Jessica Spurlock JSpurlock_Womens_Day_2.jpeg

Jessica Spurlock is our newest Project Manager, and also assists with social media and marketing endeavors. Before coming to Invicta, Jessica was a middle school teacher (we really don't know how you did it, Jessa!) and prior to that she was a Sonographer in Nashville, TN. What she loves most about ISG are the new challenges and opportunities for growth, as well as the team of supportive and inspiring colleagues that make work enjoyable.

Jessica is an Army wife of 18 years. She and her husband have three lovely daughters aged 16, 14, and 8. In her spare time, you can find her driving or flying with her daughters to volleyball games across the country.
