We would like to take a few moments and introduce you, your chapter officers, and your members to the ISSA Intl Women In Security Special Interest Group (WIS SIG).

Mission: Build a stronger community for both WOMEN and MEN within the security field, given the unique challenges faced within the industry.

Vision: To Connect the World, One Security Practitioner at a Time.

Visit and join our community page, where you can find relevant program, event, and leadership opportunity information:

2014 Call To Action

· Add a Women In Security SIG area to your website · Cross-Post the Quarterly WIS WIG Events · Put out a call for participation for the ISSA-Intl Conference · Help Us Build out the Community by passing out rack cards to women attendees, speakers, and sponsors

Message: We would like to extend an invitation to chapter leaders, members, and volunteers to SPREAD THE WORD, get involved, and help us grow domestically and internationally.

We offer networking, professional growth, mentoring, recruiting, and career growth opportunities for women within the security industry, as well as those interested in entering the cyber security field overall.

If you or your chapter personnel are able to support this initiative, have an interest in volunteering in any capacity (speaker, conference committee, leadership, outreach, etc.), or simply wish to become active within our community, please reach out to the co-chair, Rhonda Farrell at

We would appreciate your energy, enthusiasm, and experience as we work to grow the WIS SIG to the next level.
