Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing fields in technology, with global spending increasing by 12% - 15% year-over-year. There is also a talent gap in this sector, with an estimated global workforce shortfall of 3.5 million people stunting the growth of this industry.
Women only make up 24% of Cybersecurity professionals. However, they are responsible for some of the most critical work in this field, from founding security companies to setting corporate and government policy, spearheading DEI initiatives, and representing themselves and their companies on Boards and global security organizations.
Celebrating the women making an impact in Cybersecurity can demonstrate to diverse women everywhere that they have a path to leadership and success in this exciting and expanding field. In so doing, we can move towards better equity and inspire even more incredible women like these to excel in the field while empowering Cybersecurity with the diverse talent it needs to succeed.
