Apps for Security Hackathon in DC

Apps for Security Hackathon

SINET and SAIC are hosting an Apps for Security hackathon in conjunction with the Amphion Forum in Washington, DC on June 27th from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The goal of Apps for Security is to promote civic engagement, open innovation, and entrepreneurship while making us all safer and more secure in cyberspace.

They’ll spend the day building privacy and security enhancing apps leveraging the data, SDK, and APIs offered up by their data providers: Mocana, SAIC, and the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate.

Regardless of skills or interest, they’re encouraging participation from people and organizations who would like to make a difference in privacy and security online. If you have ideas for creating a safer internet through open data, collaborative innovation, and a dash of entrepreneurship, then consider participating. And, if you have a prototype or proof of concept you’d like to work on at Apps for Security, bring the code and invite others to work with you on it.
