Promoting Women in Cybersecurity

As the financial sector faces a global shortage of cybersecurity professionals coupled with an increase in targeted threats, FS-ISAC is pleased to invest in cybersecurity talent development through an annual scholarship for women.

Launched in 2016, the Women in Cyber Scholarship is 100 percent funded through the generosity of our members. Through contributing sponsorships, firms provide both financial support and mentorship to rising young women pursuing cybersecurity careers in financial services in the United States, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, or Africa.
