The CTC Academy has a number of upcoming programs in the fall and spring to help members achieve their talent goals.
CalCISO convened in Santa Monica to hold the first meeting regarding its Women in Cyber Initiative. The meeting featured opportunities for stakeholders to engage in a variety of new programs, as well as highlighting career profiles of four women in the cybersecurity profession.
The combined boards of all CTC initiatives met jointly for an abbreviated annual retreat during JP Morgan and CES week. Included were board participants from every initiative across CTC, from our scientific advisory board to BioCalifornia to Clean Acres and the new Women in Cyber program, among others.
As CTC member PwC has identified, the number of women working in the US information security profession is just 14% of the information security workforce. The gap is roughly double the shortage of women in IT professions in general.
