European Cybersecurity Job Market: The Gender Perspective

Europe's cybersecurity market: the gender perspective

A three-day virtual event dedicated to cybersecurity, the 2020 Cybersecurity Leadership Summit will gather more than 60 international speakers and KuppingerCole analysts for 40 best practice and interactive sessions. A perfect way to know about the latest trends in cybercrime and cybersecurity!
