The OWASP AppSec EU 2014 planning team have decided to take the lead and run the Women in AppSec Program in the European region this summer, following the success of the AppSec APAC program that took place earlier this year in Tokyo, Japan. The team are looking to send at least one woman from the European region to this year’s AppSec EU conference in Cambridge, UK taking place June 23-26.
The objective of the Women in AppSec Program is to encourage women, from all levels in application/ information security to expand their skills in application security. This year’s winner will be awarded attendance to the AppSec EU conference, and at least one in-depth training session. The Women in AppSec Program was successfully launched in 2011 at AppSec USA, and will be making its European debut at this year’s global conference.
Submissions to the Women in AppSec are now open, and will close on May 26, 2014 by 5pm GMT. Applicants will need to submit the form and one letter of recommendation to be considered for the Women in AppSec Program sponsorship.
Any questions about the program or to submit letters of recommendation should be directed to Samantha Groves (firstname.lastname@example.org).
