Women in AppSec Program Seeking Sponsors

This year’s Women in AppSec Program kicked off successfully at its AppSec APAC debut earlier this month. Originally, the Women in AppSec team planned to send one woman to AppSec APAC, instead they were able to send two women to the conference, where they each gave a 10-minute presentation.

To continue the trend of success, the Women in AppSec 2014 team is looking to send 1 to 2 women to AppSec EU this June in Cambridge. The aim of the Women in Application Security Program is to support and enhance programs that increase the participation of women in the field of application security. To fulfill this aim, the OWASP Foundation is currently seeking funds to sponsor women from the European region to attend OWASP AppSec EU 2014. The committee is seeking to raise $3,000 for at least one recipient to cover her conference fee, training fee, travel and at least one in-depth training session.

The benefits of sponsoring the Women in AppSec Program are:  the sponsor will have a mention in the AppSec EU program, and the logo, company name, and link to company website on the AppSec EU website on the Sponsors Page. For more information about sponsoring the Women in AppSec Program please see this year’s sponsorship document.

The winner will be participating at AppSec EU June 23-26, 2014. Please contact Samantha Groves (Samantha.Groves@owasp.org) for more information.
