Focus Overview

OWASP recognizes the extraordinary contribution of our global community by engaging them to provide input in seven areas of strategic focus. Within each of these defined areas, there are opportunities to contribute and participate. As with everything in OWASP, these discussions and decisions are open to everyone.

Each volunteer team will focus on a key function or geographic region, such as OWASP projects, conferences, local chapters, membership and industry outreach. Local Chapters, Project Leaders, questions about hosting a conference or starting a chapter should contact the appropriate Focus Leader or Staff Member for assistance, guidance or to suggest best practice.

  • Note that in a perfect world we would have your best regional representative on each committee from your country as a delegate.

Global Initiatives

Each Item listed has links to the related documents, focus group information, discussion pages, and voting opportunities if appropriate, along with decision dates. Please review the provided documentation prior to submitting your vote to ensure the decisions made are based on educated and informed community input.

Community information will be reviewed by the Strategic Task force and a final proposal will be submitted to the Board of Directors for final approval.
