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 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 $110,000 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 and accommodations to and 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:
