We will share insights into how 1,000-plus organizations around the globe measure their cybersecurity preparedness and how they are preparing for future cyber threats.
In this 45-minute program, we’ll also share a new tool that allows you to compare your own organization’s preparedness to the aggregated data of study participants.

A new study has updated the ratio of women to men in the cybersecurity workforce – from 11% to 20%. Yet more than 300,000 cybersecurity jobs are unfilled today, a number that is exponentially growing into the millions. Let's do something to move the needle to 50% women in cybersecurity!
Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS), a non-profit organization with deep roots in academia, government and industry, is driving to increase recruitment, retention and advancement of women in cybersecurity.
During this engaging webinar for diversity recruiters and women in various stages of cybersecurity careers, we will interview two WiCyS Board Members who offer stats and important guidelines for recruitment and retention of women in cybersecurity.
