NCSC Renews Bid to Improve Diversity and Inclusion in Cyber

According to the results of the inaugural report, Decrypting Diversity 2020, there’s still a long way to go in the sector.
It revealed that one in five respondents do not feel they can be themselves at work, while 41% of black cybersecurity professionals felt they’d experienced discrimination because of their ethnicity over the previous year. A further 14% of respondents said they’d experienced barriers to career progression as a result of diversity and inclusion issues.
Part of the problem seems to be transparency: nearly three-quarters (74%) of negative incidents as a result of diversity and inclusion are not reported.
