    As far back as the 1970s, three women began preparing the world for 
    the havoc about to be unleashed by networked computing. From their 
    humble origins in law enforcement and academia, their influence on 
    computer security practices has spread to government and private 
    sector alike - despite the fact that two of the women had virtually no 
    IT or scientific backgrounds.  
    These security pioneers include Martha Stansell-Gamm, a former U.S. 
    Air Force judge advocate who started an arduous fight against breast 
    cancer as she took over leadership of the then 8-year-old Computer 
    Crime and Intellectual Property section of the U.S. Department of 
    Justice (DOJ). 
    While developing the DOJ's forensics procedures for search and seizure 
    of electronic evidence, Stansell-Gamm crossed paths with Raemarie 
    Schmidt, who developed digital forensics procedures for Wisconsin's 
    branch of the DOJ. Schmidt's work helped set the standard for computer 
    forensics now used by law enforcement agencies around the nation. 
    And there's Dorothy Denning, a distinguished computer science 
    professor at Georgetown University in Washington, whose writings have 
    set the stage for information security practitioners for the past 27
