Through this alliance, new members in 2021 will be able to join WSC and ISSA for the price of $100 ($50 for each organization) + chapter fees where applicable. Current members of both organizations may also take advantage of this offer and join for $50.

“Our cybersecurity community needs more diversity in it! ISSA is proud to partner with the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu to help encourage, inspire, train, and empower more women in cyber programs,” states Candy Alexander, President of ISSA International. 

“Partnering with one of the largest cybersecurity communities in the world only made sense. Both organizations provide a variety of benefits to include training, education, and more. Giving our members access to those benefits, will help them advance their careers and vice versa,” said Mari Galloway, WSC CEO and Founding Board member.

Galloway added, “Not only will our members get access to these benefits, they will be able to grow their community and network with so many more cybersecurity professionals enhancing their career progression, and we are very excited to provide this opportunity to our members.”
