New Ways to Bring Women Into and Up Through Cybersecurity Careers

In late Fall 2018, NICE staff participated in a convening of experts from corporate, academic, nonprofit, and government backgrounds to consider new ideas and implementable strategies to bring women into and up through cybersecurity careers. The event was hosted by New America and supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology's National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education under grant #60NANB18D023.

Today the outcomes of that convening have been made available to the public. These include:

  • A community scan of resources to help women in cybersecurity,
  • One page resources on actions that can be taken to increase recruitment and retention of women in cybersecurity,
  • Themes to create scalable change in bringing diversity to the cybersecurity workforce,
  • And more!

 Visit New America’s website to view these resources and learn more about the Fall 2018 convening.
