We Are SEIDEA

We exist to close the cyber-security gender gap for BAME women.

According to Cybersecurity Ventures, there will be up to 3.5 million job openings by 2021. Meanwhile, women make up only 20% of the cybersecurity workforce. This number is much smaller when looking at the digital gender gap faced by black and ethnic minority women. While 20% shows an increase from a mere 11% in 2013, there's still a lot of opportunities to be seized in cybersecurity careers.​

 

Seidea is an award-winning global movement to diversify the Cybersecurity industry that began in London, with Stephanie Itimi in 2018. Today, we are on a mission to increase the number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Women in Cybersecurity.​

 

We offer cybersecurity events, lectures and resources from industry experts for a membership fee of £14.99 per month and reinvest 35% of our profits on our community initiatives: Sei-Code and  Sei-Policy.

- Exclusive access to recruitment events and roundtable discussions.
