Women in cybersecurity make a difference every day through their different abilities, talent, commitment, innovation, dedication, and perseverance.
We are very pleased, along with all CEFCYSians, to launch this award to recognize, honor and celebrate the achievements of these deserving women in one of the most challenging and demanding fields of information technology, which is cybersecurity.
Your contribution is invaluable to the CEFCYS, and on behalf of all our members, we thank you for your participation in this second edition of the Cyber Women’s Award.

They are our sponsors

Accenture sponsor of the european cyberwomenday

Accenture is a continuous change actor and has always favored an inclusive environment where our employees are invited to break down stereotypes and prejudices related to gender. It is therefore with great enthusiasm that Accenture Security France is committed to CEFCYS in favor of the visibility of Women in Cybersecurity, in particular on the occasion of CyberWomenDay as a sponsor. I will be proud and delighted to be present on October 26th to support the event and participate in the round table. Thank you and congratulations to CEFCYS for this already unmissable event!”

CyberCercle support the european cyberwomenday

“As a woman evolving in the field of cybersecurity for ten years, company manager, involved in the CEFCYS since its creation, supporting the Cyber Woman Trophy for two years is a natural decision, as I did for the book “Je ne porte pas de sweat à capuches, pourtant je travaille dans la cybersécurité” published in January 2020. Valuing the women who work in our sector, to put forward “inspiring profiles” capable of arousing vocations among young girls and women in retraining, show the richness and diversity of possible career paths, support the actions and actors who work in the field in this sense, with this year a European dimension that makes sense… This is the vocation of the Cyber Woman Trophy that I am proud, with the CyberCircle, to support.”

“Within the Orange Group and our subsidiary Orange Cyberdefense, we are convinced that the equal opportunity for men and women in all cybersecurity professions is a key to face tomorrow’s cyber challenges. Women cyber experts are still too few in spite of their skills and even though there is an obvious lack of resources.

Supporting the Cyber Women’s Trophy by highlighting the cyber careers of extraordinary women is one of our actions to encourage vocations and make women want to be part of the exciting world of cyber security.”
