Join Smarttech247 as we are offering you the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry in our SOCs in Ireland, Poland and Romania.
Women are underrepresented in the cyber security industry and account for less than a quarter of the overall workforce around the world. Women are even less well represented at senior management level. While there is nothing inherent in gender that influences men to be more interested or proficient at cybersecurity, organisations often fail to try to recruit women to work in the industry. We want to show how gender diversity comes with growth and learning opportunities for organisations. Closing the gender gap will help pave the way for a future of gender diversity in the cybersecurity field.
At the same time the industry is facing a growing global shortage of cyber security professionals we want to help bridge this gap and so are launching a Woman in Cyber Security Academy initiative. This programme is designed to help you develop the skills to get into cyber security and technology.
There are no special hurdles: we want women of all ages to apply, regardless if you have any experience from other jobs. The Cyber Security training programme will prepare you for your first role in Cyber.
