The number of women in cybersecurity is on the rise. Recent research finds women hold 25% of cybersecurity jobs globally in 2022, up from 20% in 2019, and projected to reach 30% by 2025 and 35% by 2031. While the trend is moving in the right direction, women are still underrepresented. As an industry, we are leaving untapped talent on the table which we can ill-afford to do given the ongoing cybersecurity workforce gap.
March is Women in Cybersecurity month and March 8 is International Women’s Day. So, I thought I’d take the opportunity to speak with a woman who has grown up in cybersecurity, Anna Tutt, CMO of Oort, to share her experiences and get her perspective on how we can help accelerate this growth.
