EliteCISOs believes Women in Cybersecurity is an untapped, underrepresented potential and strongly works on bringing the talent to the right focus and speed it needs
We, at EliteCISOs believe that cyber security needs more women. The problem isn’t that there are too many men in the industry, but rather that there are not enough women.
Our efforts toward greater gender equality in cybersecurity is not one of right vs. wrong or men vs. women, but it's that having more women in the workplace is good for business. Diversity in perspectives, leadership, and experience is good for business and even more favourable in cyber security space as we need people with different backgrounds because of the kind of people we are pursuing, (threat actors, hackers, 'bad guys') also have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. The wider and broader variety of people and experience we have protecting our networks, the better our chances of success.
Also, we strongly believe that more women in cyber security will help change the status quo to improve internal and external perceptions that women. General perception for the industry is that it is “techie” and more suited for men. With more and more women joining the industry, it will help break this societal issue and we work aggressively and encourage more women to participate in our events, workshops, trainings etc.
