About

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
