AppSec Day is Australia’s only conference dedicated entirely to building and deploying secure web and mobile applications, covering DevSecOps practices for fast Agile software delivery environments. We aim to provide a welcoming environment for developers, testers, devops engineers and security professionals. To improve their knowledge, skills and to network with other like minded professionals.
In 2017 we sold 300 tickets to AppSec Day, with a successful event and positive feedback we expanded our venue and for AppSec Day 2018, doubled in size with a sold out crowd of 650 software developers, testers, devops engineers, students and security professionals, interested in learning about building secure web and mobile applications, covering DevSecOps practices for Agile software delivery environments. The feedback from our 15+ sponsors has been positive year after year, with our major sponsor The CommonWealth Bank being with us from the start, supporting us as we grow and helping us succeed in our mission of providing security awareness to as many technology and security professionals as possible. For AppSec Day 2019 we are anticipating similar growth, with over 900 delegates expected. To accommodate this growth, we have locked in a professional conference venue, that will allow us to expand into the future, but continue to provide a welcoming and professional experience for all our delegates, supporters and sponsors.
