According to a recent study by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, working women experienced the worst effects of the COVID-19 recession. Schools closed, leaving mothers who provided the majority of the parenting without childcare. And women-dominated industries like hospitality and retail were some of the first businesses to lay off women workers. But while the pandemic was battering these businesses, the cybersecurity industry experienced a 400% increase in cyberattacks, causing a massive cybersecurity labor shortage. For these reasons and many others, women looking to enter the workforce should seriously consider pursuing a cybersecurity career. In this webinar, Roxanne will discuss the need for more women in cybersecurity and how women looking to start a new career in cybersecurity can get started.
