The need for diversity in cybersecurity is firmly established. Diverse perspectives help generate innovative ideas needed to solve the complex problems facing our industry. (ISC)² is deeply committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) across the cybersecurity industry and in everything we do as an organization. Earlier this year, (ISC)² convened a focus group of diverse professionals working in the cybersecurity industry around the globe who provided first-person accounts of their experiences working in the industry. In this session, we will discuss the findings from that research, as well as have an open discussion with some of the research participants into how we can improve and accelerate diversity, equity and inclusion in the workforce.
Provide insight into the experiences of women and people of color in the cybersecurity industry.
Offer suggestions on how to create a more inclusive workplace and how to recruit diverse talent.
Provide resources for participants to support their organizations in a DEI journey.
