“Ours is a growing, vital industry, and diversity of talent and critical thinking is essential for continuing to advance modern security solutions for today’s digital world. Women are an essential voice needed in this industry and we’re committed to fostering new pathways into cybersecurity to attract talent both from traditional security and non-traditional adjacent industries,” said Audra Simons, Senior Director of Product Management at Forcepoint, representing its diversity and inclusion efforts.
“Diversity of personnel brings along an equivalent diversity of thought – the perfect environment for generating great ideas, innovation and alternative perspectives which is required in this industry to address the ever increasingly sophisticated threat landscape. As we like to say, attackers only have to get it right once while businesses have to secure every vulnerability 100% of the time to be successful.”
