Diversity in cybersecurity certainly includes gender and ethnicity. Importantly, robust cybersecurity also requires discipline diversity, in order to craft sustainable solutions.

Combining diverse skills, perspectives and situations is necessary to meet effectively the multi-faceted, dynamic challenges of security. Looking beyond the sensational headlines about hackers, phishers and scammers, it is obvious that cyber threats and harm don’t come only from malevolent outsiders or even malicious employees. Security problems frequently stem from perfectly satisfied employees who lack training or simply make mistakes. Effective management and training of fallible human beings is a cybersecurity domain that calls upon human resources and other vital, non-technical abilities.
