What is OWASP?

OWASP is an international non-profit organization that stands for open security guidelines and standardization. They are best known for OWASP Top 10, listing by category most prominent security breaches/misconfigurations.

The OWASP organization is divided by local chapters in each part of the world. For example, in Israel, where I live, we have a local chapter. I had a chance to attend several OWASP events and was a speaker for one of the topics. The OWASP community is great and very friendly.
