2021 Year in Review – WIS Highlights

Signing of Agreement between Fortinet and WOMCY, Latam Women in Cybersecurity.

Earlier this year Fortinet, a global leader in comprehensive, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, announced the signing of an agreement with the non-profit organization WOMCY, Latam Women in Cybersecurity. This agreement is to promote greater diversity in the cybersecurity industry in Latin America, through the training and certification of WOMCY members in the Fortinet Network Security Expert (NSE) courses. “The alliance with WOMCY also allows us to bring our training offer closer to dozens of female professionals in Latin America, increasing their job placement opportunities and collaborating with the promotion of greater diversity and inclusion in our sector”, said Pedro Paixao, CEO and VP of Fortinet for Latin America.

“Cybersecurity is part of the operational resilience of companies and the World Economic Forum recognizes that this area is one of the most important problems facing the world today and, in recent years, has consistently classified breaches from cybersecurity attacks as the most significant risk facing business and government leaders. However, there is a lack of professionals and diversity in cybersecurity to accompany this scenario and, in this sense, the alliance between WOMCY and Fortinet is very strategic for us to join forces and minimize this gap more and more,” said Vanessa Padua, Leader for the WOMCY Talent program.

Appointment Secretary General, CARICOM.

In May of this year - The Caribbean Women in Leadership (CIWiL) Regional Secretariat celebrates and extends congratulations to Dr. Carla Barnett on her appointment as the 8th Secretary General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Dr. Barnett’s selection is historic as she becomes the first woman to serve as Secretary General of the oldest surviving integration movement in the developing world.
