What is WiCys?
The Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) is the only non-profit membership organization with a national reach that dedicates to bringing together women in cybersecurity from academia, research and industry to share knowledge, experience, networking and mentoring. The organization enhances the educational and professional development of of students. We aim to give our community college students to have opportunities that are provided by the WiCyS organization.
What is the Student Chapter?
The Women in Cybersecurity WCC Student Chapter is formed by students and faculty with the goal of motivating and promoting the participation of WCC students in the field of cybersecurity and spreading cyber awareness to the community.
The Women in Cybersecurity Student Chapter aims to help bridge the gender gap that exists in the cybersecurity industry. With only 11% of women in cybersecurity and an estimated shortage of 2 million cybersecurity professionals in 2019, it's a great time to dive into this fast growing profession
