Helping Women Reinvent Their Career Path During a Pandemic

About the Event
The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc on unemployment rates, yet the cybersecurity skills gap continues to rise. With the low percentage of women in cybersecurity careers, the cyber market has reached a point of transformation that hinges on the inclusion and advancement of women. Join the Women’s Security Alliance (WomSA) as we discuss women in cybersecurity and how the pandemic has impacted the job market.
