The annual OWASP AppSec Israel Conference is the largest conference in Israel for application and software security, has been going regularly for over a decade and always draws hundreds of participants. Over 1000 people attended last year, this year we expect to exceed that since we go digital!
This year is going to be a little different in that we will be running the conference virtually but we are still planning for a full day of (online) training the day before the conference. This year that is October 27th, 2020 and the aim is for the training to be free to attend.
The training will be mostly aimed at developers and newcomers to application security but also at those with slightly more experience with the goal of improving the security of all software and growing the pool of skilled professionals in the field.
We are now calling for pro-bono trainers who are willing to support the Israeli AppSec community and submit proposals to deliver this training.
This year we are looking for multiple trainers to volunteer to deliver, hands-on, workshop-style, virtual training in English lasting between 1.5 and 3 hours rather than a full day of training. The training will potentially be dual track and whilst primarilly aimed at the Israeli application security community, will also be open to International attendees as well.
