A Progressive Movement
We received over 300 responses to a survey about women in cybersecurity. Here’s what was found out:
- While some may assume that women working in this field is something new - it’s not. 36% of respondents (313 in total) have been working in the field for 10 or more years. 53% of respondents have been working in the field for more than 5 years.
- Fewer than 50% of respondents entered the field via IT or Computer Science. The respondents are diverse in their backgrounds, coming from Compliance, Psychology, Internal Audit, Entrepreneurship/Sales, Art, and more.
"This is the most exciting field to be in. You can make it what you want to be. There is never a lack of challenge and there's always opportunity for growth." - Patricia Titus, CISO at Markel Corporation
