Cybersecurity Workforce Study
This study is being conducted by the Women CyberSecurity Society (WCSS) which is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to providing support and resources to women in the cybersecurity industry. Our goal is to aid in the retention and recruitment of women in the cybersecurity workforce. In order to do that, we need research that records the issues, challenges, and barriers that discourages women from entering and sometimes remain in the industry.

This survey also examines demographic information as well as inherent bias, lack of diversity & inclusion, and lack of support.

All personally identifiable information (PII) will be anonymized with removed. No PII information will be shared with third parties.

The results of the survey will be posted on our public website, in the coming months following collection and analysis of results.
