WISDOM: Women In the Security Domain (and) Or Mathematics

WISDOM: Women In the Security Domain (and) Or Mathematics

The award-winning WISDOM group was formed in the Departments of Mathematics and Information Security at Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL) in 2016. The group was born out of the recognised need to increase diversity in the fields of Mathematics and Information Security, and to support those already working in these fields. The WISDOM group welcomes anyone who supports this endeavour.

WISDOM activities include monthly lunch meetings, workshops, film screenings, discussion groups, socials and outreach activities.
