Security Congress Abstract
The conversation around diversity in security and closing the massive workforce gap with more women is nothing new. It is common knowledge that security is a male-dominated field with women making up only 11% to 24% of cybersecurity jobs, depending on which study you read. At this point, diversity must be a way of life, so we need to move the conversation forward to focus less on recruitment of diverse teams and more on building a culture of inclusion at micro and macro levels. Building a company culture that supports mentorship programs, career building, employee training and more will open up new doors for both a happier workforce and lower turnover employee rate.
