The Security Slam is an annual event for CNCF projects to improve their security hygiene while attracting new contributors through a fun and collaborative event leading up to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America, with recognition, awards, and giveaways at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America.

Maintainers and contributors will work together to raise their scores and win prizes for their efforts.
