  • Our Vision

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


    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 “the only woman there”. 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 women supporting women. We believe in creating a safe place for women to express themselves and to share their unique perspectives and challenges. WoSEC membership has resulted in women starting businesses together, mentoring relationships, job interviews, internships, people being able to recruit from our community, cheering squads showing up to surprise female speakers, standing up for each other, priceless advice and countless friendships.


    We support all women of security.
