As one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide, cybersecurity is in sore need of new talent to fill its millions of open positions. Women, minorities and young people comprise a significant portion of America’s workforce, and they are increasingly becoming intrigued with starting a career in cybersecurity. Studies performed by (ISC)² show that minority representation within cybersecurity is 26%, with 62% holding a master’s degree or higher; meanwhile, female representation has risen to 24%, with 45% of those women being millennials and 52% holding post-graduate degrees. These are clear signs of progress from where the industry first started, but we need to continue propelling this momentum forward. Join Marci McCarthy as she discusses how leadership, mentorship and technology are crucial in retaining and nurturing women and minorities as well as how we can think outside the box to uncover unconventional talent in unconventional places.
