Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) 2017

  • JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort 3800 West Starr Pass Boulevard Tucson, AZ, 85745 United States (map)

The WiCyS initiative was launched in 2013 with support from a National Science Foundation grant (Award #1303441, Lead PI: Dr. Ambareen Siraj, Computer Science, Tennessee Tech University) for a collaborative project between Tennessee Tech, University of Memphis (Dr. Judith Simon) and Jackson State Community College (Dr. Tom Pigg and Ms. Lisa Matlock). Since then, with support from various industry, government and academic partners, WiCyS has become a continuing effort to recruit, retain and advance women in cybersecurity. It brings together women (students/faculty/researchers/professionals) in cybersecurity from academia, research and industry for sharing of knowledge/experience, networking and mentoring.
