Promoting diversity in the field of Cybersecurity

Grant Thornton Luxembourg contributes to supporting EU’s gender strategies in the field of Cybersecurity.

Corporate firms have been promoting diversity in all fields in the quest for creating a more inclusive and equitable workplace. Of the initiatives to address gender parity, specifically in the field of cybersecurity, is the Women4Cyber initiative from the European Cybersecurity Organisation (ECSO) that offers a platform to increase the role of women in the field of cybersecurity, by encouraging and facilitating access to cyber professions.

Women4Cyber has representative chapters in a number of countries including Luxembourg. Grant Thornton Luxembourg is pleased to share that their CISO, Sabika Ishaq, has been elected as the new President of the Women4Cyber Luxembourg chapter and will be representing the organisation’s cyber initiatives on a European level.

Overall, the selection of Grant Thornton Luxembourg’s CISO, Sabika, as the new president of Women4Cyber Luxembourg is a significant step forward in promoting gender diversity and inclusion in the cybersecurity industry, which aligns very well with the diversity and inclusion goals of the firm itself. The new president's wealth of experience and knowledge in cybersecurity make her an ideal choice for leading the efforts to promote gender diversity and inclusion by prioritizing initiatives such as mentorship programs, networking opportunities, and skills development programs.

Grant Thornton Luxembourg believes that gender balance in not only cybersecurity but in all fields requires the engagement of everyone, and we support our CISO in her cyber initiatives on various fronts in the future.


“We encourage women to explore cyber careers and empower tomorrow’s professionals.”
