ESET announces (on International Women’s Day) an increase in award amount for this year’s Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship
The following information below is quoted/lifted from the ESET Newsroom Highlights where ESET announces that the award amount for this year’s Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship will be tripled to $15,000! Read on below.
Quote:....Here at ESET, we believe that diversity is key to the success of any great company and community. That is why we are continuing our support of women in technology with the Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship. Today - on International Women’s Day - we are excited to announce that the award amount for this year’s Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship will triple to $15,000. ESET will award three young women $5,000 each.  

ESET believes that diversity and equality will only serve to advance cybersecurity and cyber-adjacent industries. According to the 2017 (ISC)² Global Information Security Workforce Study, there will be a shortfall of 1.8 million workers in cybersecurity by 2022. And today, women hold only 11 percent of cybersecurity roles globally.

Apply Now: Submissions are accepted from March 15, 2019 – April 15, 2019“The ESET Women in Cybersecurity Scholarship is designed to encourage and empower women – an underrepresented segment of talent in the industry – to pursue a career in cybersecurity. It’s amazing to see how many young women are so passionate about this field and really want to do some good in the world with the technology skills that they are developing,” said Celeste Blodgett, vice president of human resources, ESET. “There is no doubt that the next scholarship winners will be future innovators and leaders in this space. If we can play a small part in helping, it makes what we do here at ESET worthwhile.”

Women bring different perspectives, viewpoints and approaches to problem-solving to the table. This diversity of perspectives is particularly critical for the future of technology, as ESET Senior Security Researcher Stephen Cobb highlighted in his recent TEDx talk (see the “white male effect” starting at 8:19), as well as for the future of our workforce, as ESET Security Researcher Lysa Myers has written about.
