The CyberWire is pleased to present the 6th Annual Women in Cyber Security reception with the assistance of our promotional partner the Cybersecurity Association of Maryland (CAMI) and our art partner Maryland Art Place.
The theme of the event, "Creating Connections," is common to the missions of our organizations and we feel strongly about empowering women to succeed in the field of cyber security. The CyberWire provides concise and relevant briefings on the critical news happening across the global cyber security domain connecting our readers and listeners with news that is important to them. CAMI is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating connections between cyber companies in Maryland and businesses locally and globally seeking cyber security products and services.
We are proud to partner with Maryland Art Place or MAP once again for the call for artists. MAP is one of the region’s leading arts organizations inspiring, supporting, and encouraging artistic expression through innovative programming, exhibitions, and educational opportunities. The theme of this unique opportunity for female visual artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area is “Creating Connections”. Creating Connections call for entry will open in the summer of 2019. The Women in Cyber Security event is all about creating connections among women working in cyber security, and of course, our field exists because of the extraordinary connectivity enabled by today’s technologies. We’re excited to see how this year’s artists interpret the theme. The winning selection will be reproduced and distributed to guests at the reception.

The Women in Cyber Security event was founded by CyberPoint International in 2014 as their signature initiative to increase diversity in the cyber security workforce. While women have done pioneering work in cyber security, too few work in a growing, vital industry that requires a diversity of perspectives and talents if it has any hope of meeting the challenges it faces in an increasingly complex, interconnected, and technology-dependent world. CyberPoint hopes that events like this will help inspire women to continue to meet the challenges of cyber security, and will create the momentum necessary to bring more women into this critically important field.
In 2016, the CyberWire has taken the lead on organizing this important event with the hope that it will grow and reach more people in the region.
