It is truly an exciting time to be in the cybersecurity industry today. After a lot of companies got caught with major security breaches, the need to have a robust and secured framework has started gaining traction. Today, security threats have become a serious concern for companies of all types and sizes.

The good news is there has been the development of many cutting-edge technologies that can minimize cyber risks and give businesses a competitive edge. But, the industry is facing severe talent shortages.

The industry being occupied by too many men is not a problem; the actual dilemma is there are not enough women in the industry. Today, there is an ever-increasing need for educated, talented, and enthusiastic cybersecurity professionals, and women have got it all.
