The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security "visible," so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of our materials are available under a free and open software license. The OWASP Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization that ensures the ongoing availability and support for our work.

Many individuals start with OWASP as a user of a user of tools guides or attending a local chapter. meeting. From that they may become a individual project leader of new tools guides contributing there expertise. Others may choose to become a active chapter leader in a state/region. Becoming a member of one of the Global Committees is not only a great achievement in the technical community, but is an opportunity to directly impact the future of OWASP Foundation globally. As a Global Committee member you are the voice for focus areas and represent the community around the world. The Global Committees ARE designed to develop a committee plan to focus on regional and global areas of improvement. Ideally you nominate a peer as a regional spokesperson and he/she is the conduit for global issues that has approx., 5-10+ hrs per month to volunteer time to OWASP Foundation.

To encourage focus and participation, we suggest that volunteers contribute to ONE PRIMARY COMMITTEE. Individuals are welcome to participate in whatever committee they would like to on efforts, conference calls etc., but may only be officially elected to serve on one committee.

  • Note that to prevent conflict of interest, International OWASP Board Members cannot endorse candidates for any committee nor can a committee member endorse a candidate for their own committee. Committee members may endorse candidates for other committees to which they do not belong.
  • Committee members who wish to transfer between committees, should discuss this with their current committee first. They must begin a new application for the committee they want to move to.
