Networking Opportunities for Women Interested in Technology
Upstate Women & Technology (UWT) is a strong, supportive women’s networking group that promotes learning and friendship in the Upstate community. We welcome women of all ages, industries, and professions to develop their networks and learn about technology.
Guest speakers are invited each month to present on various topics of interest, including technical IT topics, new innovations within IT, general business topics, company culture and values, community development conversations, advice on career-building and inter-office interaction, and more. We also support local charitable causes like Safe Harbor and the Meyer Center for Special Children.
Our members have gone on to build long-lasting relationships and networks as a result of attending Upstate Women & Technology meetings, and we’d love to see you!

Topic: Meet an Ethical Hacker!
Learn about Cyber attacks from a local expert
Cyber attackers are one of the most present threats to individuals, families, businesses and society today. These malicious hackers are primarily focused on making money with any means necessary, using the methods and various tricks that will net them the most profit in the shortest amount of time. At UWT, we’ll talk about the different types of cyber attackers, how they target you in your personal and professional lives and the different types of attacks they use to break into your company to steal sensitive data.
Speaker: Michael Holcomb (@mdholcomb) has two decades of dedicated experience in Information Security, primarily focused on Vulnerability Management, Penetration Testing, Incident Detection/Response and Industrial Controls. He is the Director of Information Security at Fluor, founder of BSides Greenville, President of the ISSA Chapter in Greenville, SC, and serves students teaching cyber security as an adjunct instructor at Greenville Technical College.
