Women Shaping the Cyber Security Industry
Whilst the demand for cyber security expertise has never been so high amongst organisations, there is a significant skills shortage within the industry. What is also alarming is that the percentage of those roles which are occupied by women is so small.
In 2013, research firm Frost and Sullivan found that women made up just 11% of the global cyber security workforce, however new research from Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that women will represent more than 20% of the global cyber security workforce by the end of 2019.
While this shows that progress is being made, we’ve still got a long way to go when it comes to improving diversity. We would like to take a look at some of the women role models within the sector leading the way for a change.
