OWASP recognized the extraordinary contribution of our most active leaders by engaging them to lead a set of six new committees that report to the OWASP Board of Directors. Each democratically established committee will focus on a key function or geographic region, such as OWASP projects, conferences, local chapters, membership and industry outreach.
