From the next generation of cybersecurity leaders to seasoned veterans, UWIC is the leading entryway to gaining a deeper understanding of the global challenge, and a tangible platform to further develop skill sets, regardless of industry, and play a vital role in shaping and protecting our future.

This year's UWIC theme EMERGENCE is made up of 3 Key Components; Transition, Awareness, and Innovation. 

Transition: encouraging women from beginning to mid-career and beyond to transition into the cyber workforce, not as a veteran or former government employee, but rather from all walks and stages of life. 

Awareness: From defending reference architecture IP to protecting Kinder-12 online, there is an actionable, societal shared responsibility resulting from the cyber technology bleed into everyday life.

Innovation – Technology and Neuro-strategy: From remote work to spearheading concepts that shape technology like enabling ourselves to disable threats, ideas are in heavy demand. It’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter. How do we connect the dots for all the areas of information gathering and all levels of decision-making to enable strategic action?
