April 17, 2019: The Women in CyberSecurity conference boasted a record high attendance while implementing new activities and programs for participants.
As more women and girls have discovered and entered the cybersecurity arena whether through education or by pursuing a career, the need to fuel that flame has been a priority for the Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) organization. Their work continues to inspire and grow, evidenced by the over 1,300 women who gathered at its latest conference, March 28-30, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The three-day conference was chock full of various activities geared toward inspiring, motivating, educating and mentoring females of all ages who are students or working professionals. In its sixth year, the WiCyS conference was conceived through a grant that yielded nearly 400 participants. This year's attendance surpassed last year's by roughly 200.
