Women in Cybersecurity

Take your cybersecurity skills to the next level by listening to the replays from our free virtual event, Women in Cybersecurity: Your Journey to an Exciting New Career, hosted by IBM.

There is a global shortage of cybersecurity professionals, and, in particular, of female and non-binary cybersecurity practitioners. This event was intended for women and non-binary individuals who want to start a career in cybersecurity; are re-entering the workforce or changing careers; or have a current career in technology and want to understand the roles available to move to a cybersecurity team.

Listen to the replays as well as NEW content and discover why a cybersecurity role may be a great fit for you!

Even though the original event was designed for women with an all women speaker lineup, the courses contain information on roles and skills needed for cybersecurity for all audiences!  Check them out.
