cyberconIQ Celebrates International Women’s Day

Innovation in Design and Gender Makeup


YORK, PA –  March 8, 2021  |  cyberconIQ Celebrates International Women’s Day.

International Women's day

“A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So, let us all choose to challenge.” The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge. So how will your company choose to challenge the norm and help forge a gender-equal world?

One 2018 report made by CyberNews explained that “women account for 24% of positions in cybersecurity- a significant increase from 2017 numbers, where they only comprised 11% of the workforce in the industry”. We can see the Global percentage of women in cyber is growing, but not as fast as it should be.

“Although men outnumber women in cybersecurity by three to one, more women are joining the field- and they are gunning for leadership positions.”

cyberconIQ is proud to announce that the brainpower behind this start-up cybersecurity company is 46% female. Being less than a year old, these numbers are something we choose to highlight as we consider gender diversity a prime asset for cybersecurity digitalization. The percent of women in our work force has allowed us to grow into the amazing company we are today.cyberconIQ - International Womens Day

We asked the women of cyberconIQ to share a quote that stands for something they believe in, or their favorite life quote in honor of International Women’s Day:


Kristine Stewart

“Well-behaved women rarely make history.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

Carol-Ann Hamilton

“There are no substitutes for you, no actors standing in the wings to play your role. Your mission will begin to take shape in you when you consciously follow your inner wisdom.”
– Naomi Stephan in her book Fulfill Your Soul’s Purpose

Cindy Hettchen

“The speed of the leader determines the pace of the pack.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lucy Proteau

“As a woman born in the 50’s, I always felt social pressure to be something I had no desire to be. One day, I realized that success in life is about choosing what makes you happy and not what society thinks will make you happy. It is best to choose your own path so your dreams can come true.”

Tanya Foster

“Keep your heels, head and standards high”- Coco Chanel

Michelle Stagaard

“Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”- Albus Dumbledore

Abigail Spahr

“To me, the essence of truly modern makeup is the freedom to be yourself, to express who you are.”- Francois Nars

Julie Sterner

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”- Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

Melanie Spahr

“If I am going to fall, I would rather fall running towards something than standing still doing nothing.” – Unknown
