A series of short classes designed to teach the major concepts of the world of cyber security in a corporate context

About this event

The Women In Cybersecurity Community Association comes to you this summer with an exclusive bootcamp of 6 sessions designed to teach the major concepts of the world of cybersecurity in a corporate context.

We are pulling knowledge from every magical corner of the industry and offer a cursus for security enthusiasts who want to start or advance in their career in cybersecurity and take it to the next level.

What you will learn

  • Cybersecurity isn't just technical. It's a partnership between multiple disciplines, and we will explain where and how it plays a role within your organization.
  • What is Security Testing and why is it important? Red teaming, pentesting, bug bounties—what do they entail?
  • How do we ensure the security of our organization? What is Blue Teaming? What makes a good CERT?
  • How do we work toward preventing security incidents?
  • What is Threat Hunting? What is DevSecOps?
  • How do we train our employees to be more secure?
  • How do we communicate all that to relevant parties within the organization that all come from multiple disciplines?

Pricing

As per our philosophy, the Summer School is free. However, we use a pay-what-you-want system, which is the occasion for us to collect donations. It’s simple math: the more we get, the more we can do. WICCA meetups are and will always be free, but we can turn donations into awesomeness for the community.

We don't take without giving back. We will be forever grateful for your donation, and to show our gratitude, we will also reward you. Below is an overview of what you'll get in return for what you give.
