CyberStories: Women in Security 

Women graduate with computer science degrees today at a lower percentage than in the 1980s, and the rate of women in cyber security is stagnant at ~11%. Behind these statistics is a reality that cyber security is missing out on a huge pool of talent even as the skills shortage is at an all-time high. 

Women in Security is the first topic in the ACSC’s new project, CyberStories.  CyberStories shares real-life experiences to address Infosec’ biggest issues. We will go beyond the headlines for a deeper understanding of the dynamics behind the statistics and unlock the potential for cyber security to grow and thrive.
