Women in Cybersecurity: IBM Invites Atlanta-Area Students to Exclusive Seminar

As security has evolved into a core issue for business and society, the talent shortage persists. Recent studies by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education predicted a shortfall of 1.8 million open and unfilled cybersecurity positions by 2022. Bringing more women into the security industry continues to be a missed opportunity to address the growing skills gap, with women representing only 11 percent of the current global information security workforce.
