Each year, WiCyS holds an annual conference with local host college partners. The WiCyS Conference is an excellent opportunity for companies to connect with women students and candidates to recruit them into the field!
50% of our attendees are students looking for employment who have been accepted through the scholarship program that sponsorships help to support.
In addition to students, the other 50% is made up of experienced leaders, professionals in the cybersecurity field who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise with others and mentor those interested in cyber careers.
There are many ways to participate in WiCyS – as volunteers, speakers, sponsors and supporters.
Because of the enormous gap between available talent and cybersecurity jobs (by some accounts it’s 300,000 by the year 2020), the mission of Women in CyberSecurity makes so much sense – to broaden participation in cyber by recruiting, retaining and advancing women in the field of cybersecurity, and improve on the very low 11% statistic of women in cybersecurity jobs.
