About this talk

ITSPmagazine meets up with Marian Merritt, Lead for Industry Engagement at NICE/NIST during AppSec California, to discuss diversity and education. Some of the main points covered during our chat: - With less than 11% of ethnic diversity and less than 10% of women in the cybersecurity field, diversity is one of the strategic goals in the National Initiative for CyberSecurity Education (NICE). - NICE has community-based approaches to get more people aware of cybersecurity careers, leveraging the local community education opportunities and getting them in touch with employers. - Raising awareness about security is something that every citizen needs to take upon themselves for their own personal safety but also their children's safety. - The day you get hacked or the day you get breached is far too late to then consider security.
