Women in Cyber 2024: Redefining And Safeguarding Our Future
Women in Cyber 2024: Redefining And Safeguarding Our Future

It’s no secret that women are severely underrepresented in the technology sector. As of 2023, women only make up 20-25% of the cybersecurity field globally. However, with the rise of cybersecurity threats, the industry is booming with high demand for workers. In fact, cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and there is now more opportunity for women to break into the cybersecurity field than ever before.  

The Female Quotient and Deloitte have collaborated together to change the equation and begin to close the workforce gap by bringing more women into cybersecurity.


In this third-annual series, The Female Quotient and Deloitte are raising the visibility of 30+ top women leaders in cybersecurity by showcasing their achievements and advice to the next generation. We aim not only to honor these exceptional leaders, but also to foster recognition that cybersecurity is a field open to women and worthy of a fulfilling career. These women’s careers have tremendous impact, as they safeguard the future for us all.


To unpack the hurdles that deter women from pursuing a career in cybersecurity, The Female Quotient and Deloitte brought together Kode with Klossy’s Karlie Kloss and Osi Imeokparia, along with graduates of the Kode with Klossy program, for a wide-ranging discussion about career goals, breaking the rules, and what it means to pursue a career in cybersecurity.


The Female Quotient and Deloitte sought to understand the factors that discourage women from entering the field, and assess how to make the industry aspirational for more women. Here is a sneak peek at our results, with more in-depth insights coming in September.
