Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, August 1st 2019, or created by us.
OWASP New Zealand Day is a free, full-day conference, which brings together a high quality of speakers from a wide range of security disciplines, including architects, web developers and engineers, penetration testers, system administrators, policy specialists and many more.
The event is also offering paid training classes at the same venue, on the day before the conference.
Organizers strive to present a variety of technical levels in the presentations, corresponding to these focus areas of the conference:
- Introductions to different Information Security topics, and the OWASP projects
- Policy, Compliance and Risk Management
- Technical topics
Introductory talks are designed for an intermediate to experienced software developer, without requiring a solid grounding in application security or knowledge of the OWASP projects. These talks should be engaging, encourage developers to learn more about information security, and provide the techniques that they can immediately use when they return to work. Many talks in the Introductory and Management areas focus on work being done in OWASP Projects and other initiatives.
Technical topics are running all day and are intended to appeal to two audiences – experienced software security testers or researchers, and software developers who have an “OWASP Top Ten” level of understanding of web attacks and defenses.
Feature talks that will appeal to those interested in the various non-technical topics that are important in the industry are encouraged. These talks might focus on the development of policies, dealing with legal and regulatory compliance obligations, managing risks within an enterprise, or other issues that could appeal to those in management roles.
