Stage 1: Written Application
Written applications opened in Q4 of 2017, closing in December. Submitted applications were then anonymised (including selectively scrubbing all personally identifiable information from answers) and distributed to assessors at random. Each assessor marked a subset of all written applications against the rubric, with each application being marked at least twice. Scores were then averaged, with the top scoring applicants being invited through to a phone interview.
Stage 2: Phone Interview
Applicants that accepted a phone interview had a 30 minute conversation with an assessor, following the Phone Interview Script. Answers were recorded by hand and again marked against the rubric. Scores were then averaged with the written application, and the top 14 scoring applicants were awarded a place in the 2018 program.
Participants were sent to three conferences across Australia: CrikeyCon, BSides Canberra and OWASP AppSec Day.
The organisation of flights and accommodation was completed at least one month in advance of the conference dates via a corporate travel agent. At each conference, participants were provided with a conference brochure telling them what to expect and providing answers to FAQ, etc.
