The Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS) initiative was launched in 2013 with support from National Science Foundation for a collaborative project between Tennessee Tech, University of Memphis and Jackson State Community College.

Since then, with support from various industry, government and academic partners, WiCyS has grown into a premier event designed to recruit, retain and advance women in cybersecurity. It brings together women from academia, research and industry for sharing of knowledge/experience, networking and mentoring.
