Diversity, inclusion and equality strategies and practices have always been integral to organizations’ daily operations and future growth. The need for executive leaders to genuinely embrace, evolve and continually hone their strategies this front has, indeed, become an even more acute differentiator and positive, constructive attribute of leading organizations. And while the cybersecurity industry, as a whole, has made some solid inroads to drive and nurture diversity, inclusion and equality efforts, more can and must be done. To be truly impactful in the long-term committed and continuous collaboration will be required. In this spirit, the Cloud Security Alliance and the International Association of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals are teaming up to support their respective members and the wider industry to aid them in further refine and reinforcing their inclusion and equality programs and long-term strategies.
