Employers, governments, educators and individuals must consider access—and agency—related barriers across a woman’s entire career life cycle. Social or cultural norms may constrain a woman’s choice of what she can study, and unpaid home responsibilities oftentimes will limit women's ability for entering or succeeding in a cybersecurity career. A framework supporting women in cybersecurity careers is essential for women breaking into the industry. Access, such as greater awareness or increased cybersecurity education, is not the primary reason why women are not pursuing cybersecurity careers. The true difficulty lies in agency: controlling resources and making decisions about their use. (Source: World Economic Forum)
