About Us

The Women CyberSecurity Society (WCS2) is a registered nonprofit founded in the spring of 2018 in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Lisa Kearney, a long-term industry veteran, founded the organization after several conversations with female colleagues about a lack of support and the barriers facing women throughout the industry.

To address those needs, Lisa started by creating local meetup events that grew into an international organization within the first year. As word spread, the demand grew. The development of programs and services provided support to the community and enabled us to achieve the objectives of our mission to advance and retain marginalized groups for a more diverse and inclusive community within the cybersecurity industry.

From the onset, our focus is on the lifecycle of a career. We understand needs are different when starting your career, changing roles and responsibilities, obtaining certifications, training and advancing into leadership positions.
