Women are fundamentally different to men and, when it comes to cybersecurity, one thing is certain. . .IF YOU'RE SHORT ON WOMEN YOU'RE LESS SAFE. Women matter in cybersecurity because of the way they view and deal with risk. Typically, women are more risk averse, compliant with rules, and embracing of organisational controls and technology than men. They're also extremely intuitive and score highly when it comes to emotional and social intelligence, which enables them to remain calm during times of turbulence – a trait that's required when major security breaches and incidents occur. As cybercrime, terrorism and warfare is increasing, and the number of women in cybersecurity is declining, now is the time to take action. By combining stories, interviews and data with practical advice, the golden rules and checklists, IN Security provides the means to turn things around.
