Please help fund the participation of OWASP Leaders and key industry players at the next OWASP Summit


This page is part of an OWASP fund-raising effort to help to bring the best talent in the world to the OWASP Summit 2011:

If you want to create one, copy the content from this sample request and create a page with the format: Summit_2011/Funding/{YOUR_NAME}

An appeal from Lucas C. Ferreira

Back in 2008 I barely knew OWASP. I was beginning to read OWASP's guides and used OWASP WebSacrab for my job. In November 2008, I got the opportunity to participate in the first OWASP Summit (which coincidentally also happened in Portugal).

This gathering of OWASP most active and passionate leaders changed my view of the organization and made me become more involved in its activities. Since this first Summit, we managed to bring to life two AppSec Brasil conferences (2009 and 2010) and moved from a single Brazilian chapter to the five chapters we now have.

For me, the Summit is the best opportunity to really know OWASP by meeting the people that make OWASP's success history. There is no better time to become involved in OWASP than a Summit.

Your help in participating or funding the Summit it will certainly help OWASP leaders to generate new ideas, projects and more quality products from OWASP.

Why Sponsor the Summit Participants

As the face of application threats continues to grow, we need your help. This February, we begin a new era of our mission by convening at the OWASP Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal. Many of our attendees fund their own way in order to spend a week of work, research and talks that will shape the next iteration of tools and deliverables for the global security community to share. As part of this effort, we need your financial support in order to get all of our top leaders present. This personal request is one that asks you to consider any monetary support for mobilizing our global leadership community to convene in less than a month. Please act today and you'll help to support the ongoing efforts of a growing non-profit that has given so much and is ready to give much more through its tools, research, frameworks, and much more.

How Can You Help?

As of January 10, 2011, after having spent much for organizing our global summit, we are still short of our goal. The current shortfall is what separates many of our top leaders/contributors from attending the Summit in February. If you are a company and would like to sponsor a leader, you can make a difference with your pledge today. Funds are used to subsidize their travel to and accommodations at the week-long working session. Our leaders and top contributors selflessly donate their time and Application Security knowledge to provide guides, tools, and other resources that benefit governments and companies all over the world. If you have benefited from the free materials at OWASP, please consider supporting our Summit today!

Here are some of the leaders/contributor that need your support in order to be present at the Summit:
