The Houston Chapter will focus around Web Application Security issues with discussions on application layer vulnerabilties, penetration testing, and secure coding practices within the numerous development languages. Our chapter will meet on the second (2nd) Wednesday of each month and participation in OWASP Houston is free and open to all.
Please subscribe to the mailing list for meeting announcements. Our chapter's meetings are informal and encourage open discussion of all aspects of application security. Anyone in our area interested in web application security is welcome to attend. We encourage attendees to give short presentations about specific topics.
