  • Our Vision

    Women of Security (WoSEC) is a community for all women, including LGBTQ+, non-binary, trans and gender nonconforming individuals who have an interest in cybersecurity.


    We encourage women to join the information security community and make long-term careers in the industry.


    WoSEC chapters meet both virtually and in person in cities around the globe. Activities range from talks to workshops to brunches and other social gatherings. Occasionally we “crash” events by attending in a group so that none of us are ever “alone” in the group. In short, we support each other.


    We don't have membership fees, in fact, WoSEC doesn't charge fees for any of our events.


    Women of Security believes in supporting each other. We believe in creating a safe place for individuals to express themselves and to share their unique perspectives and challenges. WoSEC membership has resulted in members starting businesses together, mentoring relationships, job interviews, internships, people being able to recruit from our community, cheering squads showing up to surprise speakers, standing up for each other, priceless advice, and countless friendships.

WoSEC doesn’t WANT to use cookies or trackers of any kind, however, the CMS we are using contains trackers. We are currently working with our website hosting provider to disable them and we will update our policy once we have had them removed. We will never share your information with third parties.

The only information WE collect on this site is your email address and name (feel free to use a fake name) which you voluntarily submit to us when you sign up to receive our newsletter. If you do not wish to use your real email address, perhaps you might consider creating a ‘throw-away’ email address or use one of the many free sites that provide an email alias to obscure your real one? If you want to remain anonymous, we respect your decision.

This privacy policy is modelled after DuckDuckGo’s. WoSEC suggests that you consider using DuckDuckGo as your browser of choice for a privacy-assured web experience.
