Welcome to the OWASP Software Assurance Day DC 2009.

This single-day conference will be held on March 13th in conjunction with the Software Assurance Forum (March 10th-12th) sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and National Institute of Standards and Technology.

We are pleased to invite OWASP members, attendees of the Software Assurance Forum and any other interested parties to join us for this event.

At this event, you will hear presentations from key leaders in the web application security domain on:

  • the state of the union for the Open Web Application Security Project
  • the current status of several ongoing OWASP projects
  • recently released knowledge resources to assist web application security programs in establishing a standard for minimum due care
  • recipes for leveraging OWASP resources in security testing efforts
  • the emerging importance of application security in the wireless domain
  • a state-of-the-art approach to automating multi-perspective application security assessment


You will also find out how you can leverage OWASP resources and participate in OWASP activities through local chapters in the DC/NOVA/Maryland area.

The co-located Software Assurance Forum is also a free conference and open to any attendees of OWASP Software Assurance Day DC 2009, though it will require separate registration.

For information on registration for the Software Assurance Forum, please contact Jennifer Brezovic.


If you have any questions relating to the conference or just want to help out, please email the conference chair, Sean Barnum.
