Why cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity plays a vital role in upholding the world as it is today. However, we felt that people nowadays lacked enough knowledge on this topic, considering that according to the MIT Technology Review, by 2021 an estimated 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs will be unfilled, and of the candidates who apply, fewer than one in four are even qualified. As a result, we believe that whether it be families, who want to protect their memories, photos and sensitive, personal information, or large companies, whose reputation relies on the trust they build with their customers and storing their data safely, it is important that we begin by resolving the main issue that humans are the weakest link in cybersecurity. 


Furthermore, we’re determined on promoting both diversity and equality, which led us to identify gaps in industries where women were underrepresented. From our research, we discovered that women only make up around 20% of the technology industry. Due to this shocking figure, we decided to focus on cybersecurity, in the hopes that in the near future, we can create gender equality in the industry. In this rapidly-developing digital world, we felt that there is an increasing need to educate children, adults and the elderly of how they can prevent themselves from becoming vulnerable to cyber attacks.
