Redefining the Role of a Cybersecurity Professional
The security industry is often viewed as a relatively new field that has exploded in the last decade. However, like most STEM fields, our security workforces often lag other industries in terms of drawing from a broad talent base. Many people find the security field intimidating – and Hollywood’s portrayal of the field does us no favors. What’s needed now is for security pros to be vocal and showcase the diversity of their skillset – this, in turn, will bring more diversity into the industry. Truly, we need creatives just as much as we need data scientists and hackers.
