Jump to: navigation, search


OWASP recognized the extraordinary contribution of our most active leaders by engaging them to lead a set of six new committees that report to the OWASP Board of Directors. Each democratically established committee will focus on a key function or geographic region, such as OWASP projects, conferences, local chapters, membership and industry outreach.

...they all use web applications...some even protect human life as well as PII and credit cards :)

  • Identify issues or "efforts" like the Browser Working Group and others, the group should invite Industry CIO/CISO's (perhaps as a "value" of corporate membership support) to want to publicly collaborate on a document of industry needs that can add value to having the support of OWASP Foundation for the greater good of secure software, a internet based global economic platform and humanitarian needs worldwide


  • Enable the support required at the local level to accomplish the overall mission and goals of the association
