The Tipping Point
As expected, this was great addition to yesterday's column. Media focused around the data breaches has convinced the average Joe of the needed changes in card security protocols and portrayed EMV as an inevitable fraud solution. Your content today, however, is the marketing message that needs to be conveyed to consumers. A complete leap-frog of EMV implementation is not likely, but at the very least, contactless technology can run beside it (and over time EMV can be retired alongside Windows 95 and cassette tapes). As mentioned, setting up multi-layer fraud protection with biometrics and proximity correlation will eventually cause a tipping point without sacrificing convenience for security.

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
