By Kenesa Ahmad, Women in Security and Privacy
June 16, 2016 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). With our new non-profit status, WISP can now expand its current fundraising activities and membership offerings.
