Community groups are a great way to get involved with your local InfoSec community. There are a few organisations such as OWASP and DEFCON groups who are international and are open to anyone, other independent local groups may be aimed at specific groups.

 

Although we only endorse community partners we can help organise buddies to other groups. All the local groups listed are aimed at women or gender minorities. 

If your group doesn't have a code of conduct but would like one you can download our template.
