Just 11% of IT security professionals are women, survey finds

Anh Nguyen | Nov. 1, 2013
A new survey has found that just 11 percent of the global information security workforce are women - who still earn less than men on average - despite double-digit annual increases of people in the profession.

It came to this conclusion because the 'Agent of change' survey found that in the doers category, 38 percent of women were security analysts, compared with 27 percent of men.

(ISC)2 offers annual scholarships to female students aspiring to obtain information security careers, and runs the Safe and Secure Online programme, where (ISC)2-certified experts go into schools to introduce children to a career in cyber security. It also offers women in security mentoring and awareness programmes.
