According to (ISC)²’s most recent Global Information Security Workforce Study, women in the information security profession represent 10% of the workforce—a percentage that is unchanged from two years ago. Although their sheer numbers in this profession are increasing, they are only increasing at the pace of the profession as a whole.
This Women in Security white paper is based on an online survey with the objective of gauging and presenting the opinions of InfoSec professionals regarding trends and issues affecting their profession and careers.
Deborah Olusanya, a 2015 recipient of the graduate scholarship award, developed an interest in information security when working for a bank’s IT security team. When the opportunity opened up to pursue her MS in Information Assurance, she went for it. “With this scholarship, I can focus entirely on completing my degree and not having to worry about any financial constraints…I hope that with the skills I acquire from this graduate program, I too can be a positive impact in the world of information security.”
One of our 2015 undergraduate scholarship recipients, Scott Heidbrink, says, “The scholarship means I'll be able to focus more on my research and helping to further the security field. On a more personal note it takes off a lot of the stress (of) going to school and makes it a lot more enjoyable experience.”
There are so many others like Deborah and Scott who need your help. Please donate today to help create a lasting legacy of a safe and secure cyber world.
