What we're about

OWASP is a not-for-profit, worldwide organization focused on improving the security of all software. Our mission is to make software security visible, so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about true 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 Los Angeles chapter typically meets on the 4th Wednesday every month for dinner, a great security-related speaker and great networking. We frequently go out for post-talk drinks to socialize and understand what security is really about. Join the movement today!

OWASP LA Monthly Virtual Meeting - Aug 26, 2020

Online event

Come join us as we hear from Christiaan Brand, part of Security and Identity team at Google present: TOPIC: How to FIDO ABSTRACT: Authentication remains one of the unsolved problems on the modern Internet. Partly because it sits at the intersection of a bunch of very challenging subjects: crypto(graphy), user experience, social understanding (needs to be robust against social engineering and other human-factor attacks). This talk starts where WebAuthn 101 left off - looking deeper into the various FIDO/WebAuthn use cases and how you can start your journey towards a world without passwords. BIO: Christiaan Brand co-founded financial services security firm, Entersekt in 2009. He has since moved to Google where he's part of their Security and Identity teams. Christiaan is a frequent industry commentator on all areas involving cyber-crime and cyber security and co-chair of the FIDO2 technical working group inside the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) alliance looking to standardize strong online security protocols.
