WiCyS is a national non-profit membership organization dedicated to bringing together women in cybersecurity from academia, research and industry to share knowledge, experience, networking and mentoring. The initiative was created through an NSF grant by Dr. Ambareen Siraj at Tennessee Tech University in 2013, and has grown into a wonderful alliance among academia, government, and industry.
The purpose of the NY Metro Area Chapter is to further this mission within the New York metropolitan area.
