Thoughts from our community
WISC is a catalyst for change addressing the issues faced by women and young girls in the information security industry. It is an invaluable community that provides support, guidance and training for members to excel in their respective endeavours.
WISC is providing the framework for open dialogue between women. Although culturally there might be differences, knowing someone is there that you can relate to from a gender POV is helpful and “a breath of fresh air”.
This initiative is important because it will highlight the security field, while simultaneously encouraging and supporting women to be apart of it.
I believe in the purpose of the WISC initiative to foster growth of women and girls within the Information Security. It is both timely and warranted and will improve the cyber security workforce gender gap.
Women are underrepresented in the industry and as such Women in Security is an excellent venture that will empower the Security industry in the Caribbean and help bring it to the forefront.
I'm convinced that, the Women In Information Security Caribbean initiative will undoubtedly help to create more opportunities for women and girls to be a part of the information security industry. Furthermore, it is a commitment to the Caribbean in supporting the fight against cyber-crime.
I think the Women In Information Security Caribbean is a good initiative, where women can actively participate in Security and are inspired and motivated to join InfoSec as a viable career option.
