About this talk
Why aren't there more women working in cybersecurity?
March is Women’s History Month so we’re taking this opportunity to chat about the challenges that women face in the cybersecurity industry, and celebrate the journeys some of us have taken to get here.
With Black History month just in the rear view mirror, it’s crucial to address these issues from an intersectional perspective. When it comes to cybersecurity–an industry desperate for experts and for talent–it’s even more important to empower those who face challenges when entering or rising in the industry. Fostering diversity in cybersecurity allows us to encounter new ideas, reach new markets, and make better decisions.
