OWASP Kansas City
Welcome to the Kansas City chapter homepage. If you have any questions about the Kansas City Chapter, please send an email to our chapter leaders, Justin Ferguson, Mat Caughron or Nathaniel Cole.
OWASP-KC’s mission is to be a welcoming community for Web Application Developers and Information Security Professionals to learn, communicate, and share their perspectives at a common table.
We will be holding regular meetings on the 4th Tuesday of every month (opposite SecKC!). Thanks to the generosity of the Kauffman Foundation, our meetings are currently held at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center at 4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO.
The OWASP Foundation is a professional association of global members and is open to anyone interested in learning more about software security. Local chapters are run independently and are guided by the Chapter Leader Handbook. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional association your support and sponsorship of any meeting venue and/or refreshments is tax-deductible. Financial contributions should only be made online using the authorized chapter donation button.
OWASP Kansas City is ALWAYS looking for speakers. If you have a AppSec-focused project or topic you would like to present at an OWASP meeting, please contact our chapter leaders!
OWASP is a member-supported organization. OWASP membership is not required to attend our meetings, but every time one of our members purchases an OWASP membership, some of those funds come to our local chapter. We also appreciate all Donations!

Bro, do you even AppSec?: Real-World Application Security Case Studies
We will go in-depth with several recently-published Application Security vulnerabilities, to show how inattention to AppSec can have real-world consequences (or maybe just help a hacker get a free lunch). If you're trying to make a case for an AppSec program in your workplace, this presentation might just give you some ideas. If you're an InfoSec guy trying to explain to your developers what this AppSec thing is all about, bring them along!
Our OWASP Project Spotlight this month will be on the OWASP Zap Proxy, which is a valuable tool for discovering some of the vulnerabilities we'll be talking about as well. We'll also try to devote part of our meeting time to general discussion/networking.
- Attendance at an OWASP chapter meeting is free and open to anyone interested in web application and software security.
- Registration at the Eventbrite is appreciated so we know how many to expect, but not required.
- Professionals with CISSPs, or other certifications, can earn CPE credits by attending.
Or, get a discussion going by posting a message to our mailing list.
Thanks to the speakers for sharing with us at our past chapter meetings. Any presentation handouts or associated documents are shared through the following meeting summaries:
