Education & Security Awareness

The Women CyberSecurity Society (WCS2) is a registered non-profit founded in April 2018 by Lisa Kearney, a cybersecurity veteran. The idea originated after experiencing bullying and harassment on the job time and again with no support available. Lisa decided to do something about it and created a community member association to fill in the gaps to raise awareness about the lack of diversity, inclusion for women and marginalized groups across the industry.

Today, the society supports the community by offering mentoring, 24/7 unlimited online training, workshops, scholarships, awards and more. If you’re an organization with similar goals, reach out to us to collaborate. 

Our mission is to advance and retain women and marginalized groups within the cybersecurity industry.  We understand support is needed  throughout the lifecycle of a career!  No matter if you’re seasoned veteran or just getting started in cybersecurity, we have programs and services here to help you!

We aim to increase diversity and inclusion while increasing workforce skills and lowering the gender gaps within the industry. The partnerships we build focus on fostering opportunities and leading the way for women to succeed.  Women should not just survive but thrive when they receive the support and equal opportunities to achieve goals and leadership positions.
