Gender diversity in cybersecurity, the key to getting ahead of hackers? People will always be the largest attack surface, and with cyber-attacks becoming increasingly more sophisticated, it’s vitally important that professionals in the cybersecurity field adjust strategies that not only focus on solving the technological challenges, but also the human dimension. This will allow cybersecurity teams to not just keep up, but also get ahead of these hackers. What if the key to unlocking a strong cybersecurity strategy is in addressing the labor imbalance for women in cybersecurity? Hear me out. It’s no secret that men outnumber women in the cybersecurity industry. In fact, according to a study conducted by (ISC)2 in 2018, women make up not quite a quarter of positions held on cybersecurity teams. Studies also show that when decisions are made by gender-diverse teams results were better 95% of the time.
