GISEC Inspire - Women in Cyber

Disparity between genders in the workforce has been detrimental, but research shows that increasing diversity is not only good for the company, but the economy as a whole. In fact, a whopping $28 trillion to the economy as a new report by McKinsey & Co. found full gender equality would add 26%, or $28 trillion, to global gross domestic product in 2025. 

There is approximately 4.07 million unfilled cybersecurity positions in the world to date. Diversity, or there lack of, is a direct link to this figure. Women are dramatically underrepresented in the cybersecurity space, as they make up a mere 20% of the workforce globally and only 5% in the Middle East region alone. Without a plan to grow the cybersecurity workforce to include women, prominent businesses and government agencies will become increasingly vulnerable.

GISEC Inspire brings together cybersecurity companies, government and big thinkers to promote methods to bring women into the cybersecurity field.
