According to different studies, there is a serious lack of qualified professionals and clear information on professional information security careers. On the other hand, almost 90% of the global workforce is males. One of the reasons might be that there are no female cybersecurity role models that girls can follow. Likewise, the cybersecurity stereotype does not reflect what they would like to be in the future.
The Be@CyberPro project aims to address the gender gap facing the computer security industry. It intends to partner with private sector companies and academic institutions in order to work with middle, high and vocational schools to promote cybersecurity careers and address the gender gap. Several institutions from Bulgaria, Hungary, Ireland and Spain are working on several fields to achieve that goal.
