    NortonLifeLock, the cybersecurity company formerly known as Symantec, scored high on gender equality, nationality dispersion, and board expertise.  Several veterans of the technology and cybersecurity space sit on the board, including Sue Barsamian, former chief sales and marketing officer at HPE’s software division; Emily Heath, senior vice president and chief trust and security officer at DocuSign; and Sherrese Smith, managing partner at finance law firm Paul Hastings and vice chair of the firm’s data privacy and cybersecurity practice.  Cybersecurity is a top concern for companies, with global losses from cybercrime expected to reach at much as $10.5 trillion annually by 2025. NortonLifeLock has seen considerable growth in subscriptions to its cybersecurity products as people have spent even more time online throughout the pandemic. The ongoing acquisition of antivirus company Avast is another demonstration of NortonLifeLock’s interest in increasing its user base and evolving its capabilities.
