Welcome to OWASP Baltimore

The OWASP Baltimore Local Chapter meetings are FREE and OPEN to anyone interested in learning more about application security. We encourage individuals to provide knowledge transfer via hands-on training and presentations about OWASP projects, security research topics, and the Software Development Life Cycle.

The chapter is committed to providing an engaging experience for a variety of audience types ranging from local students and those beginning in AppSec to experienced and accomplished professionals and researchers who are looking for competent collaborators for active OWASP-related projects.

We encourage vendor-agnostic presentations and individual volunteerism to enable perpetual growth. As a 501(3)c non-profit association, we encourage donations of meeting space, catering, and event sponsorship. Simply contact the local chapter leaders listed on this page to discuss.
