Closing the Gender Gap in Cybersecurity: Girls Can’t Be What They Can’t See

Heather Ricciuto, Academic Outreach Leader at IBM Security, joins this podcast to discuss why women are vastly underrepresented in the cybersecurity industry and why that’s a problem. She also shares examples of the programs and initiatives IBM runs and supports to help close the gender gap.

We invite you to learn more about the Women in Cybersecurity (WiCys) community and to register to attend the fifth annual WiCyS Conference, happening March 23-24 in Chicago and sponsored by IBM.
