Silver Sponsor: Aura Information Security

Aura Logo

Having started from a humble boutique web-development shop in 2001, Aura Information Security has been specializing solely in information security since 2006, and is now proud to be one of the top IT Security consulting business in NZ (and highly award winning), alongside some very talented peers – damn we have an epic talent pool of security experts in NZ! At Aura we love to mix this security expertise with great Kiwi ingenuity to come up with some visionary solutions (in our opinion). This is why out of our 30 strong team we have half focused on pen-testing, training, research and security consulting, whilst the other half are developing and supporting our scanning and web-shielding solutions RedEye and RedShield with a fast growing NZ and overseas client base.

As for Girl-Geeks, we love em, and there should be more of em! We have 4 girls (with differing geekness) on the team, and we love them, so we want more! Enjoy dinner on us!

Kiwicon 7 Girl Geek Dinner: Dinner

You’ll be starting the evening off from 6 pm with a selection of canapés and a drink upon arrival, served to you in the Atrium. You’ll have plenty of time to arrive and check in your coats or bags at the door. We’ve even rolled out the red carpet for you!

Later in the evening, we’ll serve the dinner. This is the main course of the evening, and includes seven dishes from the Monsoon Poon menu served banquet style right at your seat. They’ll be naan and steamed rice served, and our own bar will be available if you need to top up any time throughout the evening with a selection of craft beers and wine (and more just next door upon request).

There’s plenty of options available for vegetarians, gluten intolerant and dairy free diets. The staff can cater for other allergies too, so just let us know how we can help.

The evening will close with a dessert platter of seasonal tropical fruits and Wendy’s Whittaker’s 72% Ghana chilli chocolate brownie. Yum!

You’re very welcome to stay and enjoy yourselves afterwards, but we’re mindful of Kiwicon’s many other events and early start, so we’re trying not to run too late into the evening.

Only one week to go! Looking forward to seeing the 54 of you who have registered so far! We’re confirming numbers with the venue shortly, so be in quick to guarantee yourself a seat.
