This is an unsatisfactory and unsustainable model. Cyber security is not merely a technical, but a societal and business challenge that requires a diverse set of disciplines and skillsets that includes traditional areas such as computer science but also increasingly requires strong competences in criminology, psychology, business, law, and political science.
The Women’s Cyber Forum in its mission to build awareness and promote cyber security, is conducting a series of one day seminars focused on information sharing, networking and mentoring for women professionals seeking opportunities in cyber security.
The goal of these seminars is to create a platform for information sharing, networking and mentoring and to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security as a career choice for young women in particular.
These seminars are designed for young professional women (and men) with an interest in cyber security issues. Desired attendees include women and male allies already engaged or considering careers in cyber security, including university students and faculty, industry professionals, members of the government, and professional organizations
