About Richard:

Richard Greenberg is the current Chapter Lead for Los Angeles. He has been a selfless and tireless volunteer for OWASP, helping to grow both the OWASP Los Angeles and Orange County chapters. He has been an instrumental force in uniting the information security community in the Southern California region. He has been involved in a multitude of projects and events, increasing awareness of OWASP and secure development and helping to grow membership.

When Richard joined the OWASP LA Chapter, meetings were attracting 12-15 attendees. His marketing efforts and work with the vendor community to help sponsor meetings has driven attendance to 80-100 each month. There are currently 1166 OWASP LA Meetup members.

When the Orange County Chapter stopped meeting, Richard worked with the International Board and local volunteers in OC to reinvigorate the OC Chapter. It now meets monthly and has 791 Meetup members.

Richard was a member of the OWASP Global Conferences Committee.

Richard has a wide vision, and has reached out far from just the Development community to indoctrinate many IT and InfoSec professionals in Southern California with the philosophy and beliefs of OWASP. He is also President of ISSA-LA, and has been ensuring collaboration between these two leading SoCal organizations for many years, resulting in a large increase of both awareness and attendance at meetings. Richard has also organized joint meetings also with CSA (the Cloud Security Alliance) and HTCIA (High Technology Crime Investigation Association).

Richard was a Co-Chair of the highly successful AppSec USA in Irvine, California a few years ago, and has been Co-Chair of the highly acclaimed AppSec California from its inception in 2014 to the present, conferences that have provided possibly the best speaker line-ups anywhere.

Richard also speaks at conferences and moderates panels on InfoSec and Secure Development, most recently at the ISSA-LA Security Summit at the LA Convention Center in June. He has worked with ISSA International to bring secure development talks into the general InfoSec community, including presentations to CISOs and at the ISSA International Conference.

If we are going to affect change and help to get companies to take seriously the release of secure software, we cannot continue to just "preach to the choir", but must reach all those who can have a say in company policies. Collaboration is the key, and Richard is a strong proponent of this, using so much of his waking hours (fortunately he only needs 4-5 hours of sleep a night) to bring folks together to learn and share information.
