Women in Cybersecurity Day – 2016 Annual Cyberjutsu Awards Dinner

Now on its third year, the 2016 Annual Cyberjutsu Awards Dinner returns to celebrate the women who have made an impact in the world of cybersecurity. The Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) is once again gathering for this event in a night of fun and festivities on August 12th 2016 at the Rooftop Bar & Grill in Arlington, Virginia.

Women in Cybersecurity Day

What is the Cyberjutsu community?

The WSC is a non-profit organization passionate about helping and empowering women to succeed in cybersecurity. By arranging study groups, providing training and workshops, and developing a STEM program, the WSC is paving the way for women to enter a field that has a significant lack of gender diversity and a troubling supply of workforce talent.
