There is a known international talent shortage in the cybersecurity community that’s only continuing to grow. According to (ISC)², there will be 2.93 million cyber jobs available in 2019, yet not enough professionals in the space to fill those jobs.

What’s even more alarming is that women makeup just 20 percent of cybersecurity professionals in an already-lacking space. Tenable is committed to not only closing the gender gap in cybersecurity, but also retaining the talent that we have. Today, we have announced our internal “Women@Tenable” group to encourage an open dialogue about the gender gap in infosec, and to also continue to make strides in encouraging early STEM careers.

 

Recently we sat down with a few women of Tenable to ask them to share some advice with other women who are entering the male-dominant space, and also share why they felt Tenable is different from other employers.

 

What advice would you give to another woman who is starting her career in a male-dominant industry like cybersecurity?

“Never underestimate yourself! There is nothing you can’t do. You will probably have a different approach to the business than your male colleagues. You can be as successful as a man, if not more!”-Emmanuelle Ribouleau, Area Sales Director, France

“I’m not an engineer. I didn’t go to school for engineering and I’ve made a very successful career in technology in a non-engineering field. Women who are in STEM types of courses and degrees, as well as women who are not, there’s a role for everyone in technology.”-Jennifer Johnson, CMO, New York

“There are so many tech jobs that the American workforce doesn’t have the skills to fill. We need the next generation to come up and fill those roles.”-Donna Korn, Senior Software Engineer, Maryland

“I would suggest finding a mentor that can help you navigate the vast landscape and your journey."–Rose Elliott, Senior Director of Engineering, San Francisco

 

As a woman in cybersecurity, does Tenable differ in any way from previous employers?

“What I can say about Tenable is that I do not feel like there is a glass ceiling. My career here can be what I make of it. From my experience, we offer equal pay for equal work. I feel like every opportunity would be afforded to me regardless of gender.”-Kay Cee Drass Jacobson, Regional Sales Manager, Colorado.

“At Tenable we have so many inspirational women working in all areas of the business. Speaking from my own perspective, I have the respect of my male colleagues, am judged on my ability rather than my gender, and truly believe I’m seen as a valued member of the team.” Dulcie McLerie, PR Manager, EMEA
