OWASP Security Blitz

Jump to: navigation, search


OWASP is starting a monthly security blitz where we will rally the security community around a particular topic. The topic may be a vulnerability, defensive design approach, technology or even a methodology. All members of the security community are encouraged to write blog posts, articles, patches to tools, videos etc in the spirit of the current monthly topic. Our goal is to show a variety of perspectives on the topic from the different perspectives of builders, breakers and defenders.

How Can You Help?

Individual Experts

As an individual please create material on the monthly security topic. If you have recently created material that is relevant to the month at hand then please link it in the section below. As mentioned above, the goal is to have a variety of perspectives (builder, breaker, defender, policy, etc) and types of content (tools, docs, videos, code patches, etc)

Companies / Organizations / Universities

Please consider launching an internal awareness program to coincide with the security blitz. This will allow all of us to pool resources and maximize the impact of each month's topic.
