WALTHAM, Mass. -- Liquid Machines, Inc., the leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) solutions, today announced that Chico’s FAS, Inc. (NYSE: CHS), a specialty retailer of exclusively designed women’s clothing, has selected Liquid Machines Document Control™ software to secure and control access to some of its most critical and sensitive company electronic data. Liquid Machines enables Chico’s to provide its executives and staff role-based access and usage controls to Chico’s intellectual property. Deployment of Liquid Machines to additional business units will continue throughout the next few months as the company expands its digital rights program.

Chico’s currently operates more than 800 women’s specialty stores across the United States, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico under the trade names “Chico’s,” “White House|Black Market,” “Soma by Chico’s” and “Fitigues.” Virtually all of the clothing and accessories offered at each of the company’s branded stores are designed by the company’s in-house product development team, bears each brand’s trademark, and is confidential until the time it is publicly made available through its retail stores, on-line store, or mail-order catalogues.

“At Chico’s, we are dedicated to protecting critical company information across all of our brands, from our product design, purchasing and sales information to our marketing plans and new product introductions,” said Ed Martin, Information Security Manager for Chico’s Retail Services, Inc. “Liquid Machines is an important part of our intellectual property protection strategy and program, giving us the confidence we need to share confidential information with authorized associates.”

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.
