Challenges and Opportunities for Women in Cybersecurity
March is Women’s History Month with this year’s theme being “choose to challenge.” From a cybersecurity perspective, the number of women in this sector is increasing rapidly and it’s an exciting time to be part of this industry. However, the representation of women in holding roles within this industry is still an issue with studies showing the number of women currently working in cybersecurity is only between 20% and 25%.
Three female leaders at ThreatQuotient, Celine Gajnik – Head of International Marketing, Chantelle Dembowski – Senior Director of Human Resources, and Liz Bush – Director of Product and Partner Marketing, are at the top of their game. What’s more, they have been ‘choosing to challenge’ the status quo for years. Here they share their thoughts about the opportunities for women in Cybersecurity.
Despite coming from different business functions, these cybersecurity female role models and mentors discuss the future of cybersecurity, the advice they would give to women looking for a career in cybersecurity and how they are making a difference and driving change.
