According to a 2013 study conducted by growth strategy consulting and research firm Frost and Sullivan, women made up only 11% of the global cybersecurity workforce. While that research was rather narrow in terms of the job roles and types of cybersecurity it included, everybody concurred that female representation in cybersecurity was appallingly low.Cybercrime Magazine’s research published on March 28, 2019, concluded that women represented roughly 20% of the worldwide information security salaries at that time.Although the percentage of women working in cybersecurity positions in 2021 was almost twice as high as it was in 2013, it was still far too low, according to industry experts, who believe that the market needs to keep pushing for more women to join.
