OWASP (The Open Web Application Security Project) is a worldwide not-for-profit organisation focused on improving the security of software. With over 200 local Chapters worldwide and 45,000+ volunteers OWASP's open community is dedicated to enabling organisations and individuals to develop and maintain applications that can be trusted. OWASP's meet-ups, tools, standards, guidelines, documents and forums are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security.
OWASP Calgary Chapter's mission is to enrich Calgary's application security community. We hope you can join us in accomplishing that.
Membership You don't have to be an OWASP member - though very encouraged - to attend any of our meetups; they are free and open to everyone interested in Application Security, but booking is still required.
There is a paid membership, which is a donation to the OWASP Foundation - it gives you discounts on many cyber-security conferences around the world, voting rights, @owasp.org email address and many other benefits. Join OWASP Global Foundation as a paid member here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Membership
We welcome speakers of all level! You don't have to be a pro to talk at one of our events, but we do ask that you talk be related to an application security domain and you provide value to attendees.
