As the Director – Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) of Cybersecurity experts, CyberCX, Christina Stevenson has been at the forefront of encouraging and helping women thrive in the cyber and tech industry.
Christina’s hard work and innovation were recognised at the Women in Governance Risk and Compliance Awards by winning the 2021 GRC Ambassador of the year.
The 2022 International Women’s Day takes place on March 8th, it focuses on ‘breaking the bias’ and working towards a world free of stereotypes and discrimination that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
Christina explains why gender diversity in tech/cyber is so important:
“Cyber and Technology industries that fail to attract and retain a diverse range of employees are posing a much larger and unnecessary risk to themselves and their customers. The difference in ideas, questions, and challenges raised is vastly increased with a diverse workforce is astounding.
We are seeing a shift even in core functions such as business procurement processes to include organisations social values as part of their overall scoring.”
