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 was formed by Cassio Goldschmidt. Tin Zaw and Richard Greenberg soon followed as presidents of the organization. Under their leadership, OWASP LA was awarded Chapter of the Year. Additionally, Richard Greenberg was elected to the OWASP Global Board of Directors and served 2019-2020. OWASP LA was one of the founding chapters of the world-reknon AppSec California conferences.
We hold virtual (for now) Meetups on the 4th Wednesday every month, featuring great speakers on important security topics. Once we can again meet in person, we would love to have you join us for food and drink and to socialize and understand what security is really about.
