The Women CyberSecurity Society (WCS2) is a registered non-profit society founded in Vancouver, BC by Ms. Kearney in 2018. With more than two decades in the industry, Lisa saw the need to establish an organization that provides support through programs and services in to advance and retain more women in the cybersecurity industry.
Women are severly underrepresented due to the large gender gap in the industry and therefore support is needed. Not just at the beginning but throughout the lifecycle career. Support is needed at each stage as they progress change jobs, promotions, certifications, etc. Women in the cyber ecosystem benefit from these services as their career and needs change.
Over the last 22 months, WCS2 has grown to nine chapters globally, 10k followers and thousands of supporters and particpant for our International Women in Cyber Day movement. The demand is clear, women are asking for help!
