Sobre OWASP

El proyecto abierto de seguridad en aplicaciones Web (OWASP por sus siglas en inglés) es una comunidad abierta y libre de nivel mundial enfocada en mejorara la seguridad en las aplicaciones de software. Nuestra misión es hacer la seguridad en aplicaciones "visible", de manera que las organizaciones pueden hacer decisiones informadas sobre los riesgos en la seguridad de aplicaciones. Todo mundo es libre de participar en OWASP y en todos los materiales disponibles bajo una licencia de software libre y abierto. La fundación OWASP es una organización sin ánimo de lucro 501c3 que asegura la disponibilidad y apoyo permanente para nuestro trabajo.


The Purpose of OWASP Chapters

OWASP Chapters exist to raise awareness of the OWASP mission, making application security visible, at the local level. The OWASP Foundation encourages anyone with an interest in furthering the OWASP mission at the local level to either get involved in their local OWASP chapter, or if one doesn’t exist, start a new OWASP chapter. Local chapter outreach is one of the most significant ways that individuals learn about the organization and become connected to the OWASP community. Therefore, enabling local chapter leaders and volunteers to not only hold meetings, but also contribute to projects, organize training and events, and find new ways to evangelize about application security in their city or region becomes a key to the success and growth of the much larger global organization.


The Purpose of the Chapter Handbook

The purpose of the OWASP Chapter Handbook is to provide chapter leaders with a central place to find information about starting a chapter, organizing a chapter meeting, handling their chapter finances, and many other topics that come up in the course of running a chapter. While there are a few hard and fast rules that chapter leaders must follow, this handbook is primarily composed of suggestions and best practices that have worked for other successful chapter leaders. That said, what works for some chapters may not work for others, and this handbook should not limit the scope of possibilities for running a strong and thriving chapter.
