The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a not-for-profit, worldwide organization 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 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!
