A Guide for Women in Cybersecurity
There is a nation-wide shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals (some research puts the number at 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity-related jobs by 2021). One way to meet this demand is to make sure that the cybersecurity workforce is diverse and inclusive. To that end, the industry has made great progress in hiring more women. But there is still work to be done to reach parity and a true sense of inclusion. So in the spirit of educating our readers about this issue — who are mostly students and aspiring cybersecurity professionals — we put together A Guide for Women in Cybersecurity. The guide is available for free on our site https://cybersecurityguide.org/.
