Privasec was proud to sponsor the OWASP AppSec event, Australia’s only conference dedicated to application security.

Our team had an incredible time at the event and were impressed with the calibre of speakers both local and international. We were honoured to be chosen to design the official t-shirt for the event. Some interesting topics included developing secure web and mobile applications, breaking into them and how to protect them from future compromise. More than 600 industry professionals and students took part in listening to over 20 acclaimed speakers.

Privasec is really excited to sponsor KiwiCon - one of the biggest technical computer security conferences in the Australia-Pacific region. More than 2,100 people and 30 speakers attended KiwiCon 2016 conference and the KiwiCon 2038AD (to be held on 16th and 17th November 2018) promises to be even better.

KiwiCon promises to be an insightful event that will bring together the commercial infosec industry, academics, students, and hobbyist hackers discussing the latest hacking techniques.
