Topic: Leveraging Diversity to Improve the Effectiveness of Your Security Organization
Research shows that diverse teams are more innovative and make better decisions. Yet only eleven percent of security professionals are woman and only 26 percent are racial minorities. With such homogeneity of perspectives and experience, it isn’t hard to see why we are losing the war against cybercriminals. I will discuss why a lack of diversity is making our security teams less effective than they could be and what security leaders and practitioners can do – in the short term and in the long run – to improve the diversity of their teams and the profession at large.
