ESET is Committed to Closing the Gender Gap in STEM

Since 2015, ESET North America has empowered women pursuing a career in cybersecurity with funds to achieve their dreams. We have encountered phenomenal, driven women who are passionate about being the future of cybersecurity.

In its 2022 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, (ISC)2 found the field remains predominantly male, with women representing less than a quarter of the workers. While the number of women in the field is technically increasing, there is still a long way to go.
