EWF Cybersecurity Women on Capitol Hill Public/Private Symposium

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
