Exploring diversity in Cybersecurity at the Cybersecurity & Cloud Expo
The threat of cybercrime has risen at an alarming rate, forcing many enterprise’s to rethink their approach to cybersecurity and make it a top business priority. But despite all this, a recent report Women in Cybersecurity 2019 from (ISC)² states that women only still make up 24 % of the cybersecurity workforce.
UK (PRUnderground) April 10th, 2019
With an estimated 1 million cybersecurity jobs that are unfilled worldwide, this goes beyond just a staffing issue and becomes a potential issue of security for governments, businesses and individuals alike. Diverse workforces are cited as an important factor in combating the diverse people creating the threat and the lack of diversity is hindering the ability for many tackle cybercrime effectively. Further supported by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies states, “Diversity encourages a culture where divergent opinions can be brought together to develop innovative solutions to solve some of the toughest problems our nation faces today”.
Women add a unique approach to cybersecurity, typically women are more risk adverse than men, and have greater preference for detailed exploration. As a result makes them more accustom to the changing patterns of behaviour – a skill that is much needed to correctly and quickly identify threats and protecting environments. Frost and Sullivan reported in 2013 that only 11% of women make up the global cybersecurity workforce.
