OWASP Hong Kong

Thank you for visiting OWASP.org. We recently migrated our community to a new web platform and regretably the content for this page needed to be programmatically ported from its previous wiki page. There’s still some work to be done. The historical content can be found here.

Please visit our Page Migration Guide for more information about updating pages for the new website as well as examples of github markdown.

Hong Kong

The Hong Kong chapter was formed in December 2004. The objectives to establish OWASP Hong Kong Chapter are mainly because: -There are many web applications established in past 10 years. However, how many developers know that their developed application are secure. Meanwhile, there are many transactional-based systems, we should not ignore that the web application is another channel for hackers to compromise one’s confidential information and interrupt any critical business operations.

  • Raise the security awareness of web application development among the professionals.

  • Encourage professionals to reference standard like ISO7799 for their web application security and post-deployment review as well as audit.

  • Accelerate to Share, learn, discuss and review best practices of the experienced web application development security professionals even across various user and security groups including VXRL in Hong Kong.
