Women in AppSec: Apply for a chance to attend AppSec APAC 2014 in Tokyo, Japan!

To start off the global conference season, AppSec APAC will be hosting the Women in Application Security Program for the first time. The OWASP Foundation, in recognition of value to both organizations and society, is working to support and enhance programs that increase the participation of women in the field of application security. As part of this effort, OWASP will be sponsoring one applicant from the Asia Pacific region to attend OWASP AppSec APAC to be held in Tokyo, Japan in March 2014.

Attendance for one woman to the OWASP AppSec APAC 2014 conference, and at least one in-depth training session, will be the award for this year’s winner. The winner will also be required to give a 30-minute talk while at the conference. The full award will cover the conference fee, training fee, travel and accommodation for the successful applicant.

If you are a woman traveling from the Asia Pacific region, then we encourage you to apply for a chance to win an opportunity to attend the conference. The winner will be announced February 28, 2014, and she will participate at AppSec APAC in Tokyo March 17-20, 2014.
