A Note From Our Head of WISP Tandems

Dear WISP Community, As the Head of WISP Tandems, I am happy to share the story of our Tandem Program, the vision behind it, and exciting news about the future of Tandems. Our peer-to-peer mentoring program connects security and privacy professionals who have different backgrounds, expertise, and different networks. Why? We believe that you bring unique value to your women peers, no matter which career stage you’re at.

WISP - From 7 to 700

Dear WISP Community, WISP’s seven founders first convened in 2014 to further a shared mission – promoting the development, advancement, and inclusion of women in the information security and privacy fields. In two short years, with the dedicated support of our membership community, WISP now has over 700 members nationwide. We’re excited by this growth and the potential it holds for WISP’s future. As WISP Project Director, I’m proud to announce another critical milestone. WISP has achieved official status as a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, an SF Bay Area 501(c)(3).
