A one-day conference advocating the inclusion of women & diversification of cybersecurity

Lack of gender diversity continues to plague the technology industry. Women are vastly underrepresented and under promoted in technology roles, hampering the industry’s effectiveness. According to a report by the organization ISACA, while eight in ten women report having a male supervisor and nine in ten women are concerned about the number of women in technology, only one in five organizations are very committed to hiring women in technology roles. These numbers are further exacerbated in application security where only eleven percent of the workforce is women. These numbers only further exacerbate the problem at hand.
