We’re huge fans of this organization, WiCyS. We’ve been managing this directory since 2013 and we’re seeing more and more “Women In Cybersecurity Events” and it’s fantastic of course to see them evolve. This online event is particularly awesome because it is a career-based event so there’s no excuse to not attend especially if you’re still in quarantine.
