Cybercrime Magazine is excited to bring our readers a list of women-owned cybersecurity companies in the U.S. and internationally.

Like many of our lists, this one is small and will quickly become much larger.

Our managing editor, Di Freeze, is leading our research and compilation on this project. She’s going through hundreds of cybersecurity companies right now — and vetting them by confirming (to the best of her ability) that they are in fact women-owned.

Here are some companies to get started with … and we’ll be posting many more in the coming weeks — so keep an eye on this valuable list.
