What we're about

The Women CyberSecurity Society (WCS2) is a nationally registered non-profit providing support, through programs and services to women and minorities interested in a cybersecurity career.

Our membership focuses on the above-underrepresented groups in an effort to increase diversity, encourage inclusiveness and retention within the industry. We welcome male advocates who wish to contribute in a meaningful way and abide by our WCS2 Code of Conduct ( https://womencybersecuritysociety.org/wcs2-code-of-conduct ). However, some events will be exclusive to women to allow an open and safe place to communicate freely.

The society partners with like-minded individuals and organizations who are interested in increasing diversity, retention and making this industry more inclusive for women.

Our events are available online and locally and developed to provide value to both new and veteran Cybers. Workshops, information sessions, and mentoring events are held weekly with local social events on a monthly basis.

Check out our free Mentor Monday Group Mentoring Series is hosted the last Monday of the month at 3 pm PDT. Each session is followed by a Q&A and a discussion of the importance of a 3-Year Career Plan.

Keep on the watch for local and online events which is a means to learn more about the industry, expand your network and career opportunities.
