ENISA has been developing and implementing a gender balance project. Thanks to this initiative, about 47% of ENISA staff is now female.

On this joyous occasion, ENISA is pleased to join and have an information stand at the “Cyber Aware: Spotlight on Women in Cyber” event organised by the European Commission and is launching a call to all women working in cybersecurity to apply for specialist positions at ENISA. Please consult our leaflet with detailed information and view our short clip video testimonials on woman in cybersecurity roles here.

ENISA also actively supports the ‘WOMEN in DIGITAL Programme’ of the European Commission and ECSO ‘Women in Cyber’ initiative to raise awareness of the gender balance and advocate for women in cybersecurity roles including IT security, IoT security, medical cybersecurity, transport cybersecurity, military and defence cybersecurity, technology and others.
