About the Global Education Committee

The Global Education Committee was created during the OWASP EU Summit in Portugal 2008. The primary purpose of the Global Education Committee is: to work with the OWASP Education Project to provide educational materials for both internal and external users, develop liaisons with educational institutions worldwide.

Mission

Provide awareness, training and educational services to corporate, government and educational institutions on application security.

Vision

Make OWASP educational material globally available as a well known resource in easily consumable form mapped to a framework tied specifically to user roles and responsibilities

Committee Members

Chairs: Martin Knobloch (Netherlands)

OWASP Training and OWASP Academies

OWASP Training - OWASP Projects and Resources you can use TODAY!

The main goal of OWASP Training is to support Local Chapters' training activities in a way that allows OWASP to use a model that, despite specific and punctual adjustments, can be easily replicated and become the main frame for all Chapter-led training events.

To know more about the OWASP Training concept, please see the OWASP Training page.

OWASP Academies

The idea of the OWASP Academies is to conceive a frame under which work should be done with Universities, Polytechnic Institutes, IT Schools and other Academic institutions with a view to establish solid relationships and develop with these organisms ways to collaborate and participate in the design of courses focused on web application security.

OWASP has the knowledge and critical mass to give an invaluable input to any Academy focusing on this area by:

  • contributing with its expertise in the definition of curricula and course contents that explore and study the web security field;
  • making available to the Academy its pool of interested and willing security experts as trainers.

To know more about the OWASP Academies and the activities developed, please see the OWASP Academies page.
