We’re excited to announce our first Security Slam, an event in partnership with Sonatype, where maintainers and contributors will collaborate to improve project security, while winning prizes and raising up to $50,000 in Diversity Scholarships funded by Google.
This virtual event leading up to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2022 will use CNCF’s CLOMonitor
to keep score. Each project that reaches 100% Security status will win prizes for maintainers and contributors. A donation of $2,500 will also be made in their name to CNCF’s Diversity Scholarship Fund, but it’s not just about the prizes, as each project that reaches 100% Security will have significantly improved their project’s security and be closer to CNCF’s overall security goals. Google is donating up to $50,000, and we hope to make this the largest donation ever for our Diversity Scholarships! MAINTAINERS
