Last night I was having drinks in the bar where I met and chatted to a lady. She's a graduate and currently working for Deloitte. She was fascinated with what I do and mentioned she tried to get into cyber consultancy at her firm but was put off by the men who was sexist and belittled her. She's not the first female to be put off working in this industry because of the actions of few. The old-boys networks still dominate this industry when it comes to hiring staff; and the lack of female role models in the field means a cyber security career can seem unrealistic to most. I offer mentoring and access to my network for some, but how can we encourage more women into this field? How do we change the behaviours of some (a lot of) men who still see girls as eye candy or only good for admin tasks?
