Project Summit: Academies Development Session presented at AppSec USA 2013

by Konstantinos Papapanagiotou, Martin Knobloch,

Summary : The OWASP Academies program aims to bring together academic institutions from all over the world in order to collaborate towards increasing awareness on application security. The OWASP Academy Portal is the actual deliverable of this process: a portal that will provide various types of content (presentations, labs, etc.) to students and faculty who wish to learn or teach application security.
During the Projects Summit we intend to kick start the Academy Portal, complete the intial design and add some actual content. The OWASP Academy Portal will then serve as the meeting point for application security in academia.
Moreover, the Projects Summit will serve as a meeting point for several members of the academic community and a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and experience.
