Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS)

WiCyS Cleveland

Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in the cybersecurity field.  In March of 2022, the CSU T.E.C.H. Hub led the 2022 Cleveland host consortium for the annual WiCyS conference, with support from the IOTC’s advisory groups, the Public Sector Advisory Board and the Economic Development team.  The sold-out conference was attended by over 1500 individuals and was very closely aligned with CSU’s commitment to racial and gender diversity, particularly in STEM fields. CSU hosts a student chapter of WiCyS and works closely with NEOCC to engage the Northeast Ohio Affiliate. Efforts are underway to deepen the relationship between the professional and student affiliates in the region, and to continue to foster the interface between CSU and WiCyS.
