Introduction

Following the success of the OWASP New Zealand 2009 security conference which attracted more than 150 attendees from all over the country, we decided to organise the OWASP New Zealand Day 2010. The event will be held on the 15th July 2010 in Auckland. For those people who missed the first OWASP New Zealand Day, this is a national security conference entirely dedicated to web application security. The intent of the conference is to promote and raise web application security awareness in New Zealand. IT professionals, including IT security professionals, developers, managers and students are invited to partecipate to this conference.
