There’s no question that the Information and cybersecurity industry is a male-dominated one.

But the problem isn’t that there are too many men in the industry, but rather that there are not enough women. Having more women in the industry would help improve the skills gap. Moreover, it can be a great career for women with an (ISC)2 study found that women in this field are, in general, better educated than men, and a larger percentage of women are reaching top positions.

This panel will cover the challenges we face in getting more young women involved in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education from an early age and what we can do to encourage more women into cyber security.
