#infosec | Cybersecurity Isn’t “Cool” Enough to Attract New Talent

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

New research published today has found nearly half of cybersecurity professionals believe their industry is experiencing a skills gaps because it isn’t considered “cool” or “exciting.”

The “Opportunity in Cybersecurity 2020” report surveyed over 200 cybersecurity professionals in the UK and the US about their personal experiences working in the industry. Of those questioned, 42% felt that public perception of the industry as being boring and full of dorks was dissuading fresh talent from pursuing a career in cybersecurity. 

This opinion was found to be most prevalent among millennial respondents, 46% of whom blamed the cybersecurity skills gap on the industry’s square image.  

Shamla Naidoo, former CISO at IBM, said, “To many people, cybersecurity equates to—and is limited to—someone in a hoodie bent over a keyboard in a dark room. That’s not the case at all. If we don’t expand beyond that, we’ll lose out on even more people in the industry.” 

The report was drawn from surveys and research conducted by the Center for Economics and Business Research, commissioned by cybersecurity firm Tessian. 

According to the report, improving the industry’s image to recruit more women especially could have a particularly beneficial effect for America. Researchers discovered that if the number of women working in cybersecurity in the US equaled that of men, the economy would receive a $30.4bn boost. 

Fresh talent who don’t give a fig about the industry’s image may be put off working in cybersecurity because of the lack of equality when it comes to salary. At present, cybersecurity’s reputation is tarnished by an embarrassing 17% difference in how much men and women are paid in the US, and an even more shameful gap of 19% in the UK.

Of those surveyed for the report, 45% of US respondents said offering equal pay would help with recruitment. 

Researchers found that offering equal pay would also strengthen the US economy. An additional $12.7bn would be added to the US economy if women’s salaries were equal to those of their male colleagues.

5 #Reasons Why a #Credit Freeze Isn’t Enough to Help Protect #Against #Identity Theft

Source: National Cyber Security News

When a data breach happens, it’d be great if you could simply prevent identity theft with a credit freeze. The truth is, nothing can prevent identity theft, although there are things you can do to help protect against it.

Still, with identity thieves taking aim at everything from tax refunds to bank accounts, it’s worth asking the question: “Is a credit freeze a good idea?

It can be. But it may not be enough. Here’s why.

When your personal information is exposed in a data breach, you could face a greater chance of becoming a victim of identity theft. More of your information could be out there. And if it is, it might be for sale on the dark web for criminals to acquire.

Consider this statistic: You are 11 times more likely to be a victim of identity fraud if you are notified of a breach. That’s according to the 2017 Identity Theft Study by Javelin Strategy & Research.

No one wants their personal information stolen in a data breach. But if it happens to you, you’ll probably want to do whatever you can to help protect yourself against identity theft.

Growing Up Isn’t As Bad As It Seems

I think most adults tend to look back on the “good old days” with fondness and nostalgia. We miss the lives we used to lead, before our priorities changed. It’s easy to forget about the trials we had, when we are busy remembering how fun and careless we were. Growing up may seem completely boring at times, but it’s important to remember that it’s not always a bad thing. In fact, if you look on the positive side, growing older is an amazing gift that isn’t granted to everyone.

Your Money Problems Aren’t Quite As Bad

Sure, there are still times when money is tight and I have to reel in my spending a bit, but I rest easy knowing I am leaps and bounds from where I was in my early twenties.

When Pregnancy Isn’t As Amazing As You Hoped It Would Be

I sat waiting and waiting for the “glow” to appear when I was pregnant with my son, but acne showed up instead. I waited for my hair to grow long and strong from my prenatal vitamins, but my hair grew brittle and fell out endlessly. Cute maternity clothes were almost impossible to find, and any clothes that I did find looked like a potato sack on me. I grew to resent those that had seemingly perfect pregnancies, until I realized that it was not perfect for anyone. Some people may hide their trials better than others, but that doesn’t mean their pregnancy is a walk in the park either.

‘Halloweentown’ Isn’t Just A Classic Disney Movie — It’s A Real Place You Should Visit

Come October, everyone starts squealing about how utterly obsessed they are with Halloween. But we assure you, no one is as dedicated to the spooky holiday as the quaint town of St. Helens, Oregon

The riverside city was used as the backdrop for Disney’s “Halloweentown” ― the iconic 1998 kids flick about a young witch who, with the help of her grandmother, saves a town of ghouls, ghosts and goblins who all live together in harmony.

The people of St. Helens decided that the supernatural town didn’t have to end with the 90s. Now, the townspeople come together every October to transform St.
