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.

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.

Membership Activities

Membership is an important aspect of OWASP, as the organization would be nothing without its dedicated members. Membership helps OWASP grow, creates OWASP Projects and creates a community of open source innovation to share. OWASP needs dedicated volunteers to help grow the organization in individual and corporate membership. A membership volunteer would work on various activities depending upon their region and level of time dedication. Volunteering to promote membership would require as much time as the individual wanted to put in, and would never ask for more time than an individual could give.


Related opportunities will be available as necessary:

  • Quarterly Membership Drives
  • Biannual Corporate Fundraising Drives
