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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Cyber security
Cyber security is something so important and yet it has been totally ignored and neglected by the millennials and all. It is important to start securing our IP addresses from possible data hacks or IP tracking services. I use PureVPN US server to anonymize my IP address and to securely browse the web without anyone snooping me around.
