Opportunities to Present at OWASP AppSec Europe

AppSec Europe seeks to bring together developers and security professionals at all points in their careers to be the thriving global community that drives visibility and evolution in the safety and security of the world’s software.  We understand that robust security requires diversity of thought and practitioners.  We also know that a conference that meets the needs of our community must provide a buffet of learning and teaching experiences.  We are currently seeking submissions for the following in conference events:

  • Arsenal: Do you have an opensource tool to share with the world?  The AppSec Arsenal is the place to stand out from the crowd and demo your open source tool to potential users and collaborators. Successful applicants will have grown beyond proof of concept and represent a range of tools from the well known, to the newly established; the point-solution to the broad.  Watch for submission updates.

  • Lightning Training:  Important training comes in all sizes.  Our Lightning training sessions are the perfect 1-2 hour training on the go.  Your Lightning training session will be free to the public and can be in lecture or hands on mode. This a great place teach a concept swiftly, or allow new trainers to get experience. Apply for your Lightning training now!

  • Lightning Talks: Simplicity is beautiful and provocative ideas don't necessarily take an hour to express. Lighting Talks are the place to share everything from exciting vulnerabilities, to humorous lessons learned, to new ways of securing an application in 10-15 minuets.  Share your idea on the OWASP stage!

  • Activities: Conferences aren't all talk, sometimes you just need to DO! So whether it’s a Capture the Flag event, an Escape room, lock picking demonstrations or something else we want to facilitate your Activity. Preference given to those activities with a with a more security focused theme.  You can submit your Activity for May 11/12 here.

Statement on Matt Harrigan and The Gateway Pundit

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit ran an article discussing threats made on Facebook by Matthew Harrigan to Donald Trump which incorrectly identified Harrigan as a current OWASP Board Member.  Harrigan is not now, nor was he ever on the OWASP Global Board of Directors.  The evidence Hoft used for this assertion was Harrigan's LinkedIn profile which correctly shows that he served as a board member for the San Diego Chapter  from July 2009 to 2011.  Harrigan does not currently lead any OWASP chapter.  OWASP has asked The Gateway Pundit and Jim Hoft to correct the article and retract the statement. 

OWASP is a worldwide open source security non-profit and as such does not take any political stance whatsoever.  From time to time OWASP can speak on issues directly concerning application and cyber security. OWASP's Code of Conduct directly forbids threats and harassment of any kind in OWASP spaces and OWASP does not condone such behavior elsewhere.
