About OWASP Training

OWASP Training - OWASP Projects and Resources you can use TODAY!

Dear all,

The main goal of OWASP Training is to support Local Chapters' training activities in a way that allows us to use a model that, despite specific and punctual adjustments, can be easily replicated and become the main frame for all Chapter-led training events.

In this context, we are contacting Local Chapters who have budget available, or have the means and energy to find it, to join this process and be involved.

Furthermore, we will start this effort by using the concept “OWASP projects and resources you can use TODAY!” under which the London Training has been developed and to use this model as an example both in terms of concept and methodology. Please see here for all details.

In a nutshell, we are proposing a Chapter’s driven model with Local Chapter organization in which:

  • the courses are free for OWASP members - being that by the time of the training event anyone may become a member if they desire to do so;
  • the contents are OWASP projects focused – to promote the awareness of our Projects and the understanding of how they fit into an Enterprise's security ecosystem or in its Web Application Development Life-cycle;
  • the costs are supported by a mix of funding - local chapter budget, external sponsorship, trainers sponsorship (i.e. trip and/or accommodation paid by themselves) and local chapter members’ sponsorship (i.e. taking trainers in as guests).


If you would like to organize a training event of this sort, I would suggest that you contact me after gathering the following information which will be our starting point:

  1. Date of the event
  2. Venue and directions
  3. Course’s details - with regard to the contents, we would suggest that the focus falls mainly into the OWASP Projects with the most visibility – Release Quality Projects – and Projects being developed by members of your local Chapter


The role of the Local Chapters in reinforcing visibility of OWASP Projects within the local corporate communities and, by that, in encouraging the use and understanding of our tools and documentation is absolutely invaluable – I hope you can find this opportunity to build a solid and strong training model as exciting as I do and am looking forward to having your participation!


Please do get in touch!
