  • Chapter Event: Women in Security

ISSA Chapter of Tampa Bay is hosting our 2nd annual “Women in Security” meeting that will be focused on highlighting women who work in Information Security. Less then 11% of the IT Security workforce is comprised of women and this event will be focused around highlighting security as an area where women have made a mark and letting successful women talk about their path, things they have found helpful (training, mentoring, etc), and challenges they have overcome.

We welcome anyone who has an interest in the subject, whether you are a man or women, currently working in security or may have an interest. This event is free and open to the public.
