EWF Cybersecurity Women on Capitol Hill Public/Private Symposium


Join us in the Congressional Auditorium & Atrium, U.S. Capitol Building (CVC-200) along with 100 select senior executive women for briefings from industry cybersecurity experts, Members of Congress and their staffers.

This exclusive gathering of the nation’s most prominent women in their field serves two purposes;

1. To raise Congressional awareness of the collective expertise and subject matter resources of women in cybersecurity and related fields in order to utilize womens' knowledge for expert testimony and advice locally and nationally.

2. To provide opportunity for executive women’s voices to be heard by Leaders of Congress and their staff relative to issues pertinent to the cybersecurity of private industry and government

We invite you to join us for this exclusive opportunity to meet with Members of Congress and staff to advocate for women as technical advisors to the U.S. Government.

Founded in 2002, the Executive Women’s Forum on Information Security, Risk Management & Privacy (EWF) is the largest member organization dedicated to engaging, advancing and developing women leaders in Cybersecurity, IT Risk Management, Governance Risk & Compliance and Privacy. The EWF serves emerging leaders as well as the most prominent and influential women in our field by facilitating programs and events throughout the year including a National Conference, regional meetings, leadership development and mentorship programs as well as interaction with global thought leaders through an online community.
