Crest report outlines ways to address cyber security gender gap
"The gender gap in cyber security is mainly a result of poor marketing and perception of the industry by women, according to a report by security certification body Crest.
The report is based on a workshop aimed at addressing diversity in the cyber security industry in February 2016 that was attended by representatives from Crest member companies and industry.
The workshop focused on the fact that the most recent Global Information Security Workforce Study by (ISC)2 shows that women represent 10% of the global workforce.
By comparison, 26% of IT professionals worldwide are women, according to the American Association of University Women.
Workshop attendees agreed there is no lack of opportunity for women in cyber security and that the reality of being a woman working in the industry is extremely positive.”
