Diversity's Indispensable Role in Cybersecurity's Future

Posted on in Podcasts

Enterprises thrive when they develop diverse workforces. But what exactly does that mean in today’s world? In this podcast, Britta Glade and Hugh Thompson talk to KnowBe4’s Perry Carpenter and cybersecurity consultant Prudence Smith about the value of different perspectives—inclusive of genders and race, but also across the autism spectrum—not only for individual companies, but for the industry as a whole. Topics to be covered include:

  • The role of neurodiversity in providing new ways to process information—and how this is especially beneficial within the information security realm
  • Reexamining the interview process to ensure that it appeals equally to those of varying social skills
  • The need to consider a wide range of backgrounds for cybersecurity roles—including behavioral sciences
