Women in Cybersecurity: Breaking the Bias

Presented by

24By7Security, Inc

About this talk

In the field of cybersecurity, women are underrepresented. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, women made up about 25% of the global cybersecurity workforce in 2021. Women could help fill the more than 2.5 million cybersecurity job openings, and yet there is a disconnect between organizations with open jobs and women seeking work in the male-dominated industry. As the path to cybersecurity continues to grow, it will provide opportunities for underrepresented groups to contribute at all levels. Joining us in this panel discussion, we have: - Jodi Siravo, Chief Consulting Officer, Panelist - Jennifer Serra, Security Analyst, Panelist - Andrea Garcia, Jr Security Analyst, Panelist - Elisa Bibilonia, Marketing Associate, Moderator In celebration of International Women's Day, the women at 24By7Security will come together in this fireside chat to examine and demonstrate the importance of a diverse and inclusive sector for women in cybersecurity, as well as the barriers to entry, opportunities, lessons learned, and next steps. From all levels within the company, our speakers will provide excellent insight of each of their respective journeys entering the cybersecurity world.
