Re: Edit requested
I couldn't agree more. I'm currently in the process of focusing much more on cybersecurity and it's not a walk in the park without guidance. Luckily, I'm used to the struggle of being a woman in the field so it's tolerable. Finding a female mentor is challenging and, while I hate to say it, I've had more support from the males throughout my whole career. The very simple fact of the matter is, the women that are in the roles to offer guidance usually don't. Change starts with other women in the field and nobody else.

Are Women Smarter?
As evidenced by their avoidance of this boring and thankless job, I have to conclude that the answer is "yes".

Qualified people > Gender Gap
My work in the IT Security field is more focused on the technical aspects.  As such I tend to care not a bit about your gender.  As a co-worker - I care about the quality of your work and your knowledge.

If you are better than I - I will learn from you

If you are about equal - we can learn from each other

If I am better than you - I will teach you.

I don't care if you are male/female.  It won't matter to me if you color your hair chartreuse. (although I will tease you about it) I don't care about your age.  

 

This "gender gap" worry is inane.  I am dramatically more concerned with "skilled people"   As should you be.

Re: Gebder Bias
Is this even a serious post?  We have barely a soul in the cybersecurity inductry, and the person is screaming gender biased?  Give the industry a chance to even start before you start decrying its failures.

You must have al daughters - or your wife is mad at you.

FTFY

 

Women currently working in the sector can provide valuable guidance, acting as mentors to the next generation of potential cybersecurity workers. Cybersecurity professionals such as Google's Parisa Tabriz and Katie Moussouris (who helped launched Microsoft's bug bounty program) can help promote a healthy image of women thriving in the sector, reshaping public perception of what a security expert looks like.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
