OWASP AppSec India Latest News

Many thanks to Dhruv Soi and Nitin Saxena who have served as OWASP India regional coordinators for many years. We welcome a new team in 2016 led by Milan Singh Thakur. The global foundation would like to note that the OWASP India chapter and advisory board was dissolved after 2013, following the tremendous growth in the number of OWASP chapters throughout India. Dhruv Soi and Nitin Saxena continued in an advisory role as regional coordinators, but this role should not be construed as a regional leadership. In other words they are here to advise and facilitate activity in the region, primarily as organizers for the upcoming AppSec India conference.

Please feel free to contact any of the Co-Leaders

Milan or

Deep or

Mayur to assist with AppSec India planning.
