Take a look at where we are, and where we want to go in 2021 and Beyond
According to a survey by ISC² “Cybersecurity Workforce Report” women working in cybersecurity account for about 24% of the overall workforce, compared to 11% back in 2017. While the increasing representation of women in this study is a positive development, for the professionals themselves and for the profession as a whole, there is still a wide cybersecurity workforce gap.
