OWASP Kansas City

Welcome to the Kansas City chapter homepage. If you have any questions about the Kansas City Chapter, please send an email to our chapter leaders, Justin Ferguson, Mat Caughron or Nathaniel Cole.

Our Mission:

OWASP-KC’s mission is to be a welcoming community for Web Application Developers and Information Security Professionals to learn, communicate, and share their perspectives at a common table.

We will be holding regular meetings on the 4th Tuesday of every month (opposite SecKC!). Thanks to the generosity of the Kauffman Foundation, our meetings are currently held at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center at 4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO.

Participation

The OWASP Foundation is a professional association of global members and is open to anyone interested in learning more about software security. Local chapters are run independently and are guided by the Chapter Leader Handbook. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional association your support and sponsorship of any meeting venue and/or refreshments is tax-deductible. Financial contributions should only be made online using the authorized chapter donation button.

OWASP Kansas City is ALWAYS looking for speakers. If you have a AppSec-focused project or topic you would like to present at an OWASP meeting, please contact our chapter leaders!

Sponsorship/Membership

OWASP is a member-supported organization. OWASP membership is not required to attend our meetings, but every time one of our members purchases an OWASP membership, some of those funds come to our local chapter. We also appreciate all Donations!

Upcoming Meetings

April 26th, 2016

Location: Kauffman Foundation Conference Center - 4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO - Brookside Room Speaker: Shogo Cottrell - HP Enterprise Security

We are excited to announce that for this month we have Shogo Cottrell, Security Strategist at HP Enterprise Security, to speak about Application Security and the 2016 HP Cyber Risk Report, which highlighted Application Security as one of the key areas of focus for Information Security in 2016:

Attackers have shifted their efforts to directly attack applications - The perimeter of your network is no longer where you think it is. With today’s mobile devices and broad interconnectivity, the actual perimeter of your network is likely in your pocket right now. Attackers realize this as well and have shifted their focus from servers and operating systems directly to applications.

Shogo has been an active participant in the KC Information Security community for many years, and we are looking forward to his presentation! If you have (or are!) a developer needing a high-level view of the importance of application security, this will likely be a great meeting to attend.

Please note:

  • Attendance at an OWASP chapter meeting is free and open to anyone interested in web application and software security.
  • Registration at the Eventbrite is appreciated so we know how many to expect, but not required.
  • Professionals with CISSPs, or other certifications, can earn CPE credits by attending.

Or, get a discussion going by posting a message to our mailing list.
