This paper analyzes women's participation as part of the workforce in the area of cybersecurity and the existing gender gap in that field. Through interviews with professionals and associates in the area in Costa Rica, information about the current situation of professionals in cybersecurity was gathered. The interviewees point out that they came to work in positions associated with cybersecurity without previous training, and it was the development of experiences that motivated the insertion in this area. Likewise, it is suggested that there should be greater orientation and motivation, which eliminate stereotypes that mark this type of work so that women can perform in this field.
