Welcome the OWASP Buffalo NY chapter

The Buffalo NY chapter was formed in August 2004. We meet 4 times a year for 1 to 2 hours per meeting and discuss topics related to web application security.

Goals & Objectives

It is our goal to freely distribute information related specifically to web application security. We want to ensure our members receive "free, professional-quality, open-source documentation, tools, and standards", as quoted directly from the main OWASP site. Participation is free and open to all. All are encouraged to participate.
