March 8th is International Women’s Day: a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and marking a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This year’s theme is #BalanceForBetter, aiming for gender balance throughout the workplace, boardroom, government, and more.
Gender balance in cybersecurity isn’t simply a women's issue – it’s also a crucial business issue.
Anyone can be a target of a cyberattack that can affect the whole organization. The good news is, we can all be cyber-defenders, taking responsibility for cybersecurity by being cyber-aware and following our organization’s guidelines.
In addition to overarching cybersecurity responsibility, all departments face different challenges and threats. And each has unique opportunities to protect their organization.
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), and this week’s theme is “Millions of Rewarding Jobs: Educating for a Career in Cybersecurity.” Cybersecurity is an exciting and booming field currently experiencing a talent shortage. It’s estimated that by 2021, there will be 3.5 million cybersecurity job openings, and in a field maintaining a 0% unemployment rate, the reality is that cybersecurity jobs aren’t all hyper-technical. This NCSAM, we wanted to inspire some thinking around careers through the lens of multiple layers of defense: Foundation, Culture, and Technology.
