How to Eliminate a Major Vulnerability in the Cybersecurity Workforce

Posted on in Presentations

There’s a major vulnerability in most cybersecurity firms and workforces that has yet to be addressed: the industry’s gender gap. At a gathering of cyber-practitioners, behavioral scientists, and industry and government leaders in fall 2018, we developed strategies to solve the problem and will road test them with participants at this session.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand the gender gap in cybersecurity, and why it’s a business, national security and social justice issue.
2: Learn about the strategies developed by experts and stakeholders at a recent high-level meeting.
3: Road-test strategies through discussion and interactive voting.
