Software powers the world, but insecure software threatens safety, trust, and economic growth. The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is dedicated to making application security visible by empowering individuals and organizations to make informed decisions about true application security risks.
OWASP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization, OWASP does not endorse or recommend commercial products or services. Instead, we allow our community to remain vendor neutral with the collective wisdom of the best individual minds in security worldwide. This simple rule is the key to our success since 2001.
OWASP Ottawa is returning to in-person meetups in 2023. We are planning a "hybrid" approach of in-person and online/in-person presentations. Each meetup will have at least one in-person presentation with the potential for a remote speaker. All meetups will be live-streamed.
We are a place to come and meet local developers and information security professionals, share ideas, and learn.
You will find us informal, approachable, and thankful for your assistance. We encourage and welcome beginners. We are an open, tolerant, and inclusive organisation that accepts all races, genders, creeds, abilities, things, and ideas with the exception of one - Hate: Hate has no home at OWASP Ottawa.
We provide a mix of INFOSEC talks, hands on training sessions, and special interest discussion groups. We are always looking for new ideas for events so let us know if you have an idea.
To present at one of our monthly meetings, send us your ideas! We need:
- Your Bio
- Presentation abstract
- your proposed slide deck (PPT, PDF, etc)
- any references or video to your previous presentations
Our participants are most interested in the following topics:
- Using Security Tools, preferably open-source
- Writing Secure Code
- Security of Emerging Technologies
- Infosec human issues: burnout, team dynamics, management, HR, career
