Women in Cyber Security was founded to have a platform where women from diverse academic background can come together to collaborate, exchange ideas and learn from each other.
As we all know, cyber security is a rapidly growing industry and the percentage of women in the field is alarmingly low. This organization aims to help overcome the gap by attracting women from the different academic backgrounds to learn about cyber security and to provide them with resources, and networking opportunities that are imperative for their success in the field.
Our vision for Women in Cyber Security is to become a support system not just for women that are in the program, but for those that want to pivot into Cyber Security from other fields.
As the cyber security threat landscape evolves, so do the roles that security professionals play. Chief Security Officers (CSOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are seeing the scope of their responsibilities expand. Other professionals, such as security analysts and engineers, are finding they need to know more about working with other groups within their organizations. Newer roles such as malware analyst and incident responder are emerging to better combat threats. The common thread across all of these challenges is an expanded set of knowledge and skills.
