AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OWASP is a worldwide, nonprofit organization that strives to ensure the development of software that is secure and safe. The global community achieves this in part by holding events in order to educate those who attend. "People essentially want to make their own, good decisions when it comes to online privacy, but they first need the proper knowledge to do so," says Mikael Falkvidd, chapter leader of OWASP Gothenburg.
Mullvad's VPN service helps its users evade hackers and trackers by ensuring that the traffic to and from a user's computer is encrypted to the highest standards. "With Mullvad's proven track record for IT security, they are a perfect fit for OWASP and we greatly welcome their support," says Falkvidd.
The 2016 OWASP event in Gothenburg will mark the sixth annual occurrence of this growing event in an ever increasingly important field. "We want to help strengthen the regional competence within online privacy and security, so we're quite lucky to have an OWASP community in our hometown," says Mullvad CEO Jan Jonsson.
Register for the conference on the OWASP Gothenburg Day website. (https://owaspgbgday.se/) The event is open to anyone and will be held in English.
A wide variety of topics will be presented by speakers who are experts in their fields. Extending into the evening, the conference will provide time for attendees to mingle, discuss, and share ideas with like-minded people.
