9th August, we had our planned meeting at 3 PM. Few of us (including me) were late, but the meet went on. It was nice to see enthusiasm of around 10 of us. The numbers were less, but definitely we will make it big over the period of time and I am sure about this 🙂

Quick summary

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to develop, purchase, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. We advocate approaching application security as a people, process, and technology problem because the most effective approaches to application security include improvements in all of these areas. We can be found at www.owasp.org.

OWASP has local chapters world wide and Bangalore Chapter was formed in 2004 to bring together Software Professionals to share and discuss aspects of Software Security.

Even though we had few unsuccessful attempts to meet and bring people together, the momentum is slowly gaining pace and we are now working towards building security ecosystem in the city.
