Today is International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women worldwide and advocating for gender equality. As we prepare to mark this significant occasion, we are reminded of this year’s theme: “Inspire Inclusion.” This resonates deeply within the cybersecurity industry, prompting us to reflect on the progress made and the work that still lies ahead in fostering a more inclusive and diverse environment. We strive to amplify the voices and contributions of women in our field, recognizing their invaluable role in shaping the future and working to inspire inclusion in cybersecurity.

Women in Cybersecurity are Breaking Barriers and Leading Change

In recent years, the representation of women in cybersecurity has steadily increased, yet significant disparities persist. Women comprise only a fraction of our industry’s workforce, with estimates ranging from 20% to 25%. By 2025, Cybercrime Ventures predicts that women will make up 30% of the cybersecurity workforce.

Despite this imbalance, women continue to make remarkable strides, breaking barriers and driving innovation in this rapidly evolving field. At Cequence Security, the voices and contributions of our female colleagues hold immense value. Their perspectives, achievements, and aspirations serve as powerful reminders of the impact of diversity and inclusion in cybersecurity within our company.

Let’s take a moment to spotlight a selection of remarkable women at Cequence Security whose skills and contributions have truly made a difference. Through their dedication and expertise, they have not only elevated our company but also inspired those around them. Here are some of the insightful quotes they’ve shared, encapsulating their wisdom and experiences.
