If you consider the top ten professions dominated by women, you will find focus on education, healthcare, and lifestyle – all with a theme of service and care for others. What you won’t find on that list is anything in the realm of cybersecurity or identity security. 

The truth is, cybersecurity and identity security get a bad rap. Security measures can make day-to-day operations more difficult and the changes are generally viewed as forced on the business. Well-intentioned controls put in place to reduce risk and improve security result in end users that feel oppressed and fight hard against the changes. Adoption decreases, workarounds abound, and the value of the initiative and supporting technology is severely diminished. 

Cybersecurity is hardly a profession that inspires feelings of helpfulness or service. How do we shed the stigma and shift this perception from control and restriction to enablement and empowerment?
