Summit 2011/Summit Results Summary
| “I saw the ‘blossoming’ of OWASP in Portugal’s Spring. From an external viewpoint, OWASP has moved from niche to widely relevant, from localized to global, from pentesting to SDLC, from server to every component of the application’s delivery and use, from infosec to business process relevance.” – Colin Watson
| Lisbon, Portugal, February 15, 2011 - The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) today announced the results from its 2011 OWASP Summit. Over 180 application security experts from over 120 companies and 30 different countries joined forces to plan, build, and execute programs to improve the security of the world’s software applications. The Summit was a significant step towards OWASP’s mission to ensure all types of organizations are empowered to build, select, and use software applications securely.
The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community dedicated to improving the security of application software worldwide. OWASP’s mission is to make application security visible so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about application security risks. Everyone is free to participate in OWASP and all of materials are available under a free and open software license. The OWASP Foundation is a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization that ensures the ongoing availability and support for our work. Find out more at www.owasp.org.
ABOUT THE OWASP SUMMIT
OWASP Summits are where application security experts can meet in a neutral non-commercial setting to discuss plans, projects and solutions for the future of application security.
The Summit is NOT a conference - there are no talks or training seminars. This is an opportunity to do actual work to further the field of application security. Participants will stay in shared accommodations and collaborate to produce tangible progress towards influencing standards, establishing roadmaps, and setting the tone for OWASP and application security for the coming years.
Anyone can attend the Summit! OWASP community members, application security experts, industry players, and developers are all welcome at the Summit. Attendees come ready to work and produce deliverables that advance the state-of-the-art in application security.
Many of the working sessions were created “dynamically” by the attendees. Anyone can propose a new working session, sign up for a room and time slot, and meet to work with other interested parties. Many of the main sessions ended up spawning multiple dynamic sessions to accomplish particular goals. Much of the work that goes on at the Summit is at meals, social events, or hallways. We live together, eat together, and play together. We work hard and play hard for a solid week focused on application security. Even the OWASP Band is free and open for anyone to participate.
contributions are going to make a difference to the future of OWASP.” – Vishal Garg, AppSecureLabs
|WORKING SESSIONS |
The Working Sessions are how we actually produce results at the OWASP Summit. Each working session meets in a room where everyone participates to discuss, argue, collaborate, and most importantly produce a deliverable.
