(ISC)² research highlights challenges, opportunities around diversity in InfoSec

October 19, 2021
  • “My organization has made DEI training mandatory and not voluntary like it used to be. They have also hired several women for key leadership positions. I’ve witnessed a change in the past year with more people sharing their ideas and collaborating, rather than everyone trying to protect their territory.”
  • “In the public sector in the U.S., there has been a lot of focus on getting more women, getting more minorities and getting everyone to share their story. Hiring diverse professionals, with less solid skill sets and putting together work teams with an experienced leader that helps everyone get to a similar level of skill set. Having diverse teams to promote different ideas and perspectives, not only their cybersecurity-related skills.”
  • “We need more Black women and Latinas in cybersecurity, speaking, showcasing their talent, being the trailblazers and paving the path for others knowing that these cybersecurity careers exist, and that it’s personal.”
