EC-Council is on a mission to empower women by working towards creating a gender-equal cybersecurity world.
ALBUQUERQUE, NM, March 10, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ahead of International Women's Day, EC-Council has announced a whole month dedicated to women in cybersecurity. This March, women from across the world will be able to access opportunities such as courses, scholarships, phishing simulations, and more. In addition, through March, EC-Council will be hosting interviews, webinars, white papers, and more by the top global women leaders in cybersecurity.
"EC-Council is on a mission to empower women by working towards creating a gender-equal cybersecurity world. This year, as we celebrate Women's History Month and International Women's Day, join us at EC-Council, as we pledge to work towards equal representation of women in cybersecurity," Jay Bavisi, CEO of EC-Council Group.
Cybersecurity is among the most in-demand careers of 2021. However, the industry has been facing gender disparity due to low representation of women, a number reportedly only at 20%. While there is a severe mismatch in the supply and demand for talent in the industry, the ratio of men to women is a major cause for concern. To address these twin challenges, several women leaders have stepped forward to collaborate with EC-Council to make a whole host of learning and skilling resources available to women across the globe.
Here is a list of all the experiences by EC-Council that women around the world can enjoy in March:
