The Global Forum will:
Address the current state of the CyberSecurity industry, with a focus on talent needs, opportunities and challenges in developing a highly diverse and inclusive talent pipeline with strong women leaders;
Stimulate critical dialogue on the need to engage more women in well-paying CyberSecurity jobs, and develop a progressive national strategy to attract, develop and retain more women in the CyberSecurity workforce;
Facilitate ideas and recommendations focused on individual and collective action to build a highly diverse and inclusive cyber talent pipeline;
and Recognize and celebrate the leadership and collective achievements of women leaders in CyberSecurity.
As CyberSecurity threats continue to grow as a global priority and concern in a rapidly evolving digital world, the demand for skilled CyberSecurity talent exceeds supply. Moreover, CyberSecurity and cyber defence have a significant gender problem.
