September Connector

September 2018


Letter from the Chairman
Dear OWASP Community,
We are only one month away from AppSec USA. OWASP is dedicated to education and bringing the community together. We really do hope you are able to come to AppSec USA to participate in a great conference. It's going to be a conference filled with more than 15 hands-on training courses and over 120 hours of talks with strong Keynotes by:
Chenxi Wang, Michael Coates, and  Armon Dadgar.

Looking ahead we are working on strengthening the foundation with a focus on our foundational priorities: projects, education, and community.   In the next months, we will continue to focus more support of the regional events, chapters and projects trying to develop a stronger community with increased engagement with the community working together to guide the foundation and help it reach its objectives.   The new Executive Director, Karen Staley has contacted many of you and will continue to do so to reach out and learn and ask for your support as she works to strengthen the community and OWASP.    Please support her in this endeavor as she tries to find the best way forward with your guidance and input.

I hope you enjoy this months connector with information on community, projects and the regional events.   I look forward to seeing you in San Jose!
Your Chairman,
Martin Knobloch
