About

`

The Open Security Summit 2018 is focused on the collaboration between Developers and Application Security.

Using the same model as the previous OWASP Summits, this 5-day event will be a high-energy experience, during which attendees get the chance to work and collaborate intensively. This is not a conference with uni-directional presentations. Every thoroughly prepared working session is geared towards a specific Application Security challenge and will be focused on actionable outcomes.

If you care about Application Security and want to collaborate with the key players in this industry, this is the event to be at.

Previous Summit's


Building on the legacy of the 2008 and 2011 Summits in Portugal, the OWASP Summit 2017 moved to its current home of Woburn Forest Center Parcs, in Bedfordshire, just one hour from London.

With 16 tracks and over 170 working sessions, the Summit saw collaborative working, fantastic team dynamics, long days, and longer nights. The 200+ participants, both attending in person and remotely, produced some exceptional tangible outcomes, including the Mobile Security Testing Guide.

The outcomes also included improving the OWASP Threat Modelling pages, the Application Security Guide For CISOs and Security Playbooks Diagrams.

Teams also looked at how best to visualise the information contained in a playbook, building a lightweight (bottom up) threat model and the Future of Privacy.

Details of all the 2017 outcomes are available via the OWASP Summit 2017 website.

What the Community Said

img

People recognize shared values at the Summit and this is always one of the talking points.

Just see what previous participants say:

For what it's worth, I attended the last year. This is a really good conference... one of the best ones I've attended.

Results

Participants judge the success of the Summit partly through the session outcomes.

One of the many great moments from the 20107 Summit was a team of participants publishing the Mobile Security Testing Guide to Leanpub, which has 5391 readers (as of May 26th 2018)

Watch this moment to understand the overwhelming team spirit that resulted when the participants shared their results with the public.
