What we're about
Welcome to the Sydney OWASP Chapter meetup!
We're excited to continue building up this fantastic community by organising local events throughout the year, focusing on application security and fostering collaboration among industry professionals.
Our Chapter Committee Leaders are Debarghaya Dasgupta, Blair Hudson, and Nickelby Thane.
We strive to create an inclusive environment by bringing together people from research, academia, and industry. Our aim is to empower individuals to pursue careers in cybersecurity and promote diversity and equality within the workforce.
We're dedicated to nurturing the next generation of cybersecurity talent. Connect those new to the field and come along to talks from industry professionals that showcase the many facets of cybersecurity, including diverse applied topics such as security for startup founders, starting a career in security, AppSec in a SaaS context, deep-dives into niche areas such as payments, AI security, as well as data breaches and broader privacy issues.
Our goal is to help you connect with like-minded individuals. Whether you're new to cybersecurity or a seasoned professional, we aim to foster a community where everyone can openly discuss current issues in cybersecurity, employment opportunities, and more. By providing networking opportunities, we encourage everyone to engage in the community and forge new connections.
Interested In Speaking?
We're always open to speakers who want to present talks aligned with our Chapter goals and this year's theme of diverse applied topics. Whether you're an experienced speaker or a first-timer, we'd love to hear from you. If you're interested, please email your proposed topic, abstract, and brief speaker bio to email@example.com.
Interested In Hosting An Event?
We're on the lookout for venue hosts who can accommodate 30-50 attendees and provide a screen for presentations. Hosting an OWASP meetup is a great way to support the security community while showcasing your commitment to security excellence. Please note that hosts are expected to cater pizza and beverages for attendees. If you're interested in becoming a host, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event,
Deb, Blair and Nick
