Kaspersky Lab, a global cybersecurity company, is hosting CyberStarts Boston, a free, one-day event on September 20, which aims to empower the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.

Throughout the day, participants will discuss:
- A deeper examination of the gender gap in cybersecurity and why, for example, before age 16, most females have decided against such a career
- The industry’s skills shortage and understanding unconventional career paths
- Being a leader in the workforce, including managing the blur between work and life
