Foregrounding transparency can go a long way in securing your organization's technology and workforce, according to four cybersecurity experts from Intel. Suzy Greenberg, Vice President of Communications and Incident Response; Maggie Jauregui, Offensive Security Researcher; Katie Noble, Director of Intel's Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) and Bug Bounty; and Amit Elazari, Director of Global Cybersecurity Policy discussed transparency in bug bounty and vulnerability disclosure programs, as well as gender parity in cybersecurity.
Women face unique entry barriers in the security industry, discouraging many from pursuing careers in the industry in the first place. This trickledown effect, combined with a lack of recruiting and mentorship opportunities, means the security workforce is drastically lacking in gender diversity. When companies prioritize female leadership development and break the stigma, they create diversity of thought in the process, driving their own success.
