Inspire and Get Inspired: Women Who Succeeded in Tech & Cyber
Despite the growing demand and fast-growing area in the job market, cybersecurity remains an industry where there is acute lack of skilled experts. Even worse, according to the Cybersecurity Ventures, there will be up to 3.5 million job openings by 2021. Meanwhile, women make up only 20% of the cybersecurity workforce.
March 8th is International Women’s Day, a campaign that calls to advance women in the workplace and society. In celebration of International Women´s Day 2020, QuBit mission is to inspire and encourage women to enter the Tech & Cyber space.
From QuBit perspective the Tech & Cyber is not only about the data breach investigation, the protection of computer systems, cloud & mobile security, cyber threats… cybersecurity includes even more related professions such as cybersecurity law, insurance, psychology, security compliance, marketing and many more.
