Women in Security (WIS)
Women In Security (WIS) is the ASIS International initiative dedicated to advancing the leadership and professional development of women in the field of Enterprise Security Risk Management.
Women have advanced to increasingly important roles in the field of international security and with this, there are new and expanding opportunities for women’s participation globally, as women are present in greater numbers in foreign and local security defence affairs and now occupy important positions.

The ASIS International South Africa Chapter is specifically driven to increase woman membership, and through this further the exposure of woman to the security industry and drive equal representation. This will be accomplished through sponsorship leadership training, mentoring, and networking programs, as well as substantive events, focused on current policy problems and change
