Women Hold Just 10 Percent of Cyber-Security Top Positions

The world’s leading cyber-security companies are continuously struggling to name women to top managerial positions, a recent report has found.

Eskenzi PR, a cybersecurity company, analyzed the websites of 138 leading cyber firms and discovered that women held just 10% of board positions and 16% of management positions.

Just 60 women were on the boards of directors, and only 271 women were in management roles.

The study also looked at the types of management positions held by women in cyber-security firms, finding that the majority of them are in marketing or human resources.

Just eight women have held CEO roles, and only one security firm has an entirely female management team, compared to 19 firms with entirely male leadership.

Yvonne Eskenzi, founder of Eskenzi PR, called for more women to be “in the driver’s seat” and encouraged businesses to make a concerted effort to hire more women.
