Why Infosec Girls

The field of information security lacks a community for women to provide support and mentorship within the community, as well as actively encourage women in other fields interested in security.

Our Aim

Our main objective is to get women curious about information security. We aim to do this by encouraging more women to actively participate in events like security conferences & community meet-ups.
