IT Pro 20/20: The problem with diversity in cyber security leadership

Why failing to address a shortage of women in senior roles puts businesses at risk - issue 23 is available to download now

IT Pro 20/20: The problem with diversity in cyber security leadership

Welcome to issue 23 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.

This month we look at some of the major issues facing the technology industry when it comes to diversity and inclusion, and what effect a lack of representation can have on businesses.

Our lead feature looks at the ongoing problem of representation across cyber security, specifically when it comes to leadership positions for women. Industry experts provide a behind-the-scenes look at what they’re doing to change the industry from within, and explain what’s at stake if things don’t quickly improve.

Elsewhere, we assess the nature of machine-driven recruitment and what the use of AI and digital twin technology might mean for job seekers and businesses alike. We also examine the dangers of algorithmic bias, and what businesses can do to clamp down on problematic apps.
