Information security community for women in Taiwan.

We are a group of women explorers who are taking adventure in the world of information security!

HG's goals

HITCON GIRLS is an all-female information security community. To propagate the idea of “Everyone can learn about information security!”, we aim to gather all the women who are interested and willing to take a deep dive into the knowledge and techniques to join the community.

We form study groups with various subjects for encouraging our members to overcome the difficulties through learning and share their knowledge in the community. Our mission is to create an inspiring and encouraging environment for women to learn information security, and to increase the inclusivity in the tech industry.

Some members started going their own way, maybe graduating into the workforce, maybe loving their jobs more, maybe finding new goals through the community. We expect the changes made by HITCON GIRLS to fall around the world like windblown fruit and petals, and each new seedling represents "women can be information security experts, gender is not a barrier".

HG's structure

HITCON GIRLS is consist of two units:

Administrative team

Administrative team
Here are what the administrative team do:
- Organization administration
- Events and activities planning
- Financial and sponsorship managing
- Facilities service
- Communicating and coordinating with members
The most important mission of the administrative team is to “make sure the organization is alive and active!

Study Group

The world of information security includes various subjects. We set up numbers of study teams according to the interested subjects of our members in every period cycle. Each team usually operates independently and organizes internal sharing sessions in normal time. In every month, we hold a joint study session to exchange and share knowledge between different groups. In addition to focusing on a specific subject, we believe it’s important to absorb various knowledge as well.
