Women Rule 40% of Federal Cyber Workforce

Here’s another useful infographic … this time from FCW.com illustrating the state of the cyber workforce in the federal government. Most of the stats simply quantify the expected, such as 36% of the workforce being at the Department of Homeland Security. Others were quite surprising though. One example is the finding that 39% of the workforce are women. From my experiences in the industry, this percentage seems very high. I would probably peg it at no more than 5% based on my interactions.

Any thoughts on why women represent such a higher than expected percentage of the overall government cyber workforce?
