Project Summit: Training Development Session presented at AppSec USA 2013

by Konstantinos Papapanagiotou, Martin Knobloch,

Summary : Training is an important part of OWASP's mission as it helps not only in increasing the awareness around application security but also in actually improving the security of applications. In the past, we have tried several training models (e.g. Training Days, Tours, etc.) and dozens of ideas have been put on the table. Nevertheless, we are still missing a viable training model that will be easy to reproduce and will provide added value to attendees.
During the Project Summit, we will discuss various training models, and the experience we have gained over the past years in order to build a model that will be subsequently used to train developers and anyone involved in securing applications.
