>> OWASP’s Women in AppSec (WIA) is excited to invite the founders of the InfoSec Girls initiative to the AppSec USA 2015 conference. To bring InfoSec Girls to AppSec USA, we need to raise $7500. We know that with the support of the OWASP community, we can easily get there! Donations above and beyond our goal will be used for future WIA programs around the world.
>> About InfoSec Girls
>> Based in India, InfoSec Girls educates women about information security both at the community level and as a career option. Their kickoff event at C0c0n 2014 in Kochi, Kerala attracted 130 women and was the first event of it’s kind in the region.
>> Founders, Apoorva Giri and Shruthi Kamath have spoken extensively on cybersecurity and women’s issues in India. Their efforts to bring awareness of cybersecurity to a wider audience has empowered women and girls to consider security careers as well as protect themselves online.
>> At AppSec USA in September, they will inspire and inform your organization’s diversity and education programs, as well as give individual OWASP members ideas on how they can contribute to the application security education effort.
>> Sponsorship opportunities for commercial organizations and OWASP chapters are also available. Please email Lisa Ly and Kerry Jo Richards for more information about sponsorship packages.
