🎉 We just kicked off the Spring 2023 Hackathon this morning!
Insecure design is now listed as number 4 in the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks. In recognition of International Women’s Day, our inaugural hackathon is designed to promote data privacy early in the software development lifecycle.
With 70+ community members joining us live from all over the world at the Global Kick-Off, we had a incredible morning together and enjoyed:
a delicious🍦 keynote speech by
@Kimhighlighting why the privacy posture of any software is more critical than ever and how “privacy by design” can be achieved through threat modeling
a story from

a hands-on workshop led by
@Chris Romeothat took us from performing threat modeling to a house, to an alarm system, and finally to a database
great collaboration among the hackathon teams facilitated by mentors
@AviD @Jeroen V @jt.infosec @Brook Schoenfieldin Chris' workshop
