Our Mission

We are an open network of people aiming to grow the number of women in the security community. We support, inspire, and act as role models. We connect women in the industry and those looking to enter the field with the tools, knowledge, network and platforms needed to build confidence and interest. We know the diversity of online threats require diversity of thought on how to address them, and this is where our network thrives.
