What is WICCA?

WICCA is a circle of women in cybersecurity based in The Netherlands with a vision to spread the cybersecurity word to everyone.

Our goal is to bring women who are cybersecurity professionals and security enthusiasts together and create a learning funnel for newcomers to join the field. We teach hacking, exploits, incident response, forensics, the low-level stuff, and especially make bad crypto jokes! We want to build a community of badass security women in the Netherlands and hopefully inspire future generations to join keyboards and get the hacking started!

We have 1000+ members who meet monthly to discuss all things information security. We collaborate with people, companies, the Dutch government, and universities to offer learning opportunities for women interested in a cybersecurity career, as well as experts who want to further develop their skills.  

WICCA is an entirely volunteer-driven community and all our meetups are free.


Meetups prioritize women because we want to highlight their technical achievements, but as we want to spread knowledge everywhere and to everyone, all are welcome. The main idea is for it to be a community where everyone is at ease and feels welcome. We want to create a strong circle of women, but we are not an exclusive circle. WICCA is basically a group of hacker ladies where everyone is welcome to learn from and with us!

Meet the Team



As a security engineer at GitLab, her work consists of putting out cyber fires, threat hunting, and making pretty graphs. Besides computers, she’s a fiction writer who likes Star Wars, heavy metal, and useless things like stickers and D&D.



Head of Researchers at Zerocopter. She takes care of one of the most important aspects of Zerocopter’s services: the community of researchers. Started in marketing, hacking her way up.



As a Threat Hunter at IBM, she helps customers reduce impact caused by advanced attackers by proactively looking for signs of intrusion within the network, analyzing and advising on how to combat them. Besides work and volunteering, she enjoys running, reading and travelling.

Our Philosophy

In our group, we look at the positive results of the many initiatives to increase diversity in the infosec community and in the tech world in general. We focus on good work, good research, and strong efforts that makes our community thrive. We do not let negative thoughts and endless debates take too much time away from us. We goof together, we laugh together, and we hack together!

Let’s hack the planet together.
