Cybersummit 2020 Day Three: Diversity In Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity, and IT more broadly, has long been a frustratingly homogenous field. The lack of diversity hurts us all – those who seek to join us but are excluded, the practitioners whose talents are underappreciated and unrewarded, and society at large which fails the realize all the value of those who can contribute to our efforts. Progress on diversification is unacceptably slow. This day starts with an examination of how underrepresented professionals feel about the status quo and finishes with what efforts are being made to drive improvements.
