Because we love people and cybersecurity...
we want to share our knowledge,
to build a safer digital world,
and help people to protect themselves.
Worldwide Open Cyber Security Association
(Cybersecurity International Non-profit Organisation)
Because knowledge is always more useful when it is shared, WOCSA association gathers experts as laymen, professionnals, private individuals and students with one purpose : try to make the digital world a safer and fairer place for everyone.
It is by encouraging exchanges in all their forms and by promoting communication around cybersecurity that the association is trying to make cybersecurity as widely known as possible with the ultimate goal of allowing everyone to protect themselves better.
Through its working and reflection groups, its works, its workshops and its public interventions, the association promotes the skills'exchange, the expertise sharing and all its members' dynamics. Its works' result is transformed into medias or educational supports which are then made available to all and widely spread.
In concrete terms, the association supports the dissemination of its supports and commits to the ground to bring the results of its works the closest to those who need it (free publications, conferences, awareness sessions).
By its organization, its territorial network and the implication of its members, WOCSA opts for proximity and knowledge sharing in cybersecurity.
At the beginning, WOCSA® was a French non-profit association under the « 1901 law ».
Over time, the association has grown internationally and chapters have emerged in several countries.
Today, WOCSA® is an international dynamic which gathers under the same banner, around common values and objectives, non-profit associations. Their main objective is the sharing of cybersecurity knowledge. All of them adhere to the WOCSA charter ® which ensures the consistency of this dynamic and guarantees compliance with the rules of transparency, ethics, rigor and independence carried by the association for a long time.
Transversal, inter-chapter projects and knowledge sharing (internally as well as externally) are at the very heart of WOCSA's motivations ®.
The management of WOCSA ® is ensured by the Main Chapter (« Main Chapter »), itself carried by the French historical association. In the interests of equity and representativeness, each chapter has at least one representative with decision-making power in the core team of the Main Chapter.
