Tackling gender imbalance in cyber security effectively


Statistics show cyber security has one of the worst gender imbalances in corporate technology, even though there is an ever-growing number of vacancies in the field. What is causing this, and how can we look to tackle it?
Michele Hanson, current Global CISO at Micro Focus, will share some of her thoughts and experiences on the topic, which you can take away to action in your own organisation. In addition, Michele will also touch on other areas of imbalance, such as helping those who have disabilities.

Session takeaways

  • Hear why Michele chose cyber security, the challenges she has faced as a woman, and why she would recommend the discipline to more women
  • How you can start approaching the gender imbalance in cyber security within your own organisation
  • Tips on tackling disability discrimination within the workplace
