Description

Gender diversity in tech is a hot topic for organisations, as many understand the benefits that women can bring, such as greater profitability, innovation, and lower costs. However, when it comes to cybersecurity women offer another advantage. They think differently to men and this includes how they see risk. Join best-selling author, and 23-year cybersecurity veteran Jane Frankland to hear about the unique differences between men and women in terms of risk and how a failure to attract and retain women in cybersecurity is making us all less safe. Key takeaways include: Understand the current situation and why women in cybersecurity really matter. Learn how women see risk in a different way to men, and why this is advantageous. Gain a true understanding of the three main challenges the industry needs to overcome if it’s going to increase the numbers of women. Learn how to remove barriers to entry whilst obtaining the right calibre of professional. Discover how to cultivate talent through internal and collaborative programmes. Find out what cultural changes you can make in the workplace right now so you remain operating happily within it or cultivating a more diverse workforce.
