It's Time To Address The Cybersecurity Gender Gap Before It's Too Late

It will take years to substantively raise the percentage of women in cybersecurity, so the tech industry better start working at it now.

Re: keydown
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.

This is nonsense
Oh no, there isn't an exact demographic representation in an industry?!?!  RACISM!! SEXISM!!

 

This is nonsense, pure and simple.  I just want the most qualified individuals for the position, and those who are going to enjoy working in the field.  I don't care if this means 90% of nurses are women or 90% of IT professionals are men.  The truth of the matter is men and women are different, we generally enjoy different things.  Men are on average more drawn towards STEM fields, and women are more drawn to fields with personal interaction.  There is nothing wrong with this and trying to force parity when it wouldn't naturally arise is just a recipe for pushing less competent people into positions they will probably be unhappy in.  Furthermore, until people are pushing for gender parity in the dangerous, dirty, labor-intensive and generally less-coveted jobs that men currently dominate these cries for "gender parity" will seem as disingenuous as they are when the hypocrisy is laid bare.
