Cybersecurity DIVAS was formed to recognize and promote influential women leaders who have worked their way to the top of a traditionally male-dominated industry. Built on the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, Cybersecurity DIVAS honors female leaders in cybersecurity with announcements and interviews to highlight their achievements. Our organization is composed of over 500+ multicultural female leaders who are devoted to helping other women succeed in the cybersecurity field.

Cybersecurity DIVAS helps others by educating and guiding Jr DIVAS in the making. Each year, we train and coach over 100+ Jr. DIVAS with the purpose of developing thought leaders and the next generation of leaders. A significant focus is on women who also may require assistance in the form of training, scholarships, and financial help.
