  • Edlira Martiri, Assoc. Professor, DDR



In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, the significance of robust cybersecurity mea-sures cannot be overstated. As technology permeates every aspect of our lives, the threats posed by cybercriminals are escalating. To combat these challenges effectively, it is
crucial to tap into the diverse talent pool and promote the cybersecurity sector. These editorial aims to shed light on the status of women in the field of cybersecurity in Albania, providing insights that underscore the need for enhanced efforts to empower and engage women Min this critical domain. Women remain underrepresented in the cybersecurity workforce worldwide, and Albania is no exception. The exact figures may vary, but various reports and studies suggest that women account for around 20% to 24% of cybersecurity professionals globally, while men make up the majority. Such disparities indicate the urgent need to address the gender gap and foster an environment that encourages women to pursue careers in cybersecurity. (ISC)2 estimates the global cybersecurity workforce in 2022 at 4.7 million, an 11.1% increase over last year, representing 464,000 more jobs.
