ISSA Special Interest Groups

What are you passionate about?

Women in Security Special Interest Groups


Mission: Develop global women leaders and build a stronger community to create a compelling environment around cybersecurity and technology.

Vision: Enable women in cybersecurity globally to improve their brand, showcase their capabilities, and create new opportunities.


Increase women's exposure and help them grow their careers, by giving them a platform.  Executive senior level women will share their expertise and insights with others in our field or those who want to enter or transition, through speaking and writing.  Our speakers and writers will help others grow and learn from these female role models who share.  Invited speakers will be in executive roles, often but not always in security.  Our social media platform will foster community and online mentoring for cybersecurity women.  Men are welcome to join us.

Dedicated to developing and sharing relevant privacy topics to security professionals through thought leadership and a knowledge-sharing platform available to the entire ISSA community.
