Why the cybersecurity industry must diversify if it wants people to listen

As a nation, we have a mandate to protect our assets, protect our personal data, protect our citizens and our companies. For the last few of weeks, I have been working with NCSC, using a unique blend of storytelling and tech to try and portray this message. It has been a real honour to do so, and I have learned a lot, whilst also imparting some of my own knowledge on the institution.

Cybersecurity is an issue that effects everyone and has to be a collective effort. But, as a relative newcomer to the industry, one thing that has struck me is how abstract security can feel, and how staid the industry can come across. So, it is no wonder that many people aren’t engaged with cybersecurity, and we continue to see so many security incidents caused by human error.
