OWASP Speakers Project

OWASP Speakers Project is...


This program helps local chapters or application security conferences to find OWASP related speakers to have OWASP presenters on site.


This program allows two parties to find each other:

  • Local chapters or application security events that want to attract an OWASP speaker.
  • OWASP speakers to entertain OWASP presentations and that want to see the world.

For sponsorship, see the OWASP on the Move Project page
