Ladies in cybersecurity mentorship program launched

The Association of Information Security Professionals (AiSP) has launched a Singapore-first mentorship program that will groom female cybersecurity professionals in the republic. This move will boost the number and skillsets of female cybersecurity talent, address the shortage of cybersecurity professionals needed to tackle escalating online threats, and enable women to play a bigger role in the nation’s defence. However, according to the (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, there is a shortage of 4 million cybersecurity professionals globally. They will also be able to visit the mentors’ work environments, attending meetings/conferences and reviewing documentation/publications together. This first-of-its kind “Ladies in Cyber” mentorship program adds to the repertoire of programs that the AiSP’s Ladies in Cyber charter already has to develop cybersecurity manpower, such as secondary school career talks, IHL engagement sessions, capture-the-lag cyber defence workshops, and networking sessions.
