OWASP Minneapolis/St. Paul


Welcome to the OWASP chapter local to the Minneapolis / St. Paul area of Minnesota.

  • Meeting locations vary. Please reference our Meetup page for announcements.
  • Everyone is welcome to join us at our chapter meetings; security professionals, developers, project managers, everyone!


The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software. All of our projects, tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security.

Chapters are led by local leaders in accordance with the Chapter Handbook. Financial contributions should only be made online using the authorized online donation button. To be a speaker at any OWASP Chapter in the world simply review the speaker agreement and then contact the local chapter leader with details of what OWASP Project, independent research, or related software security topic you would like to present.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in our Projects, Local Chapters, Events, Online Groups, and Community Slack Channel. We especially encourage diversity in all our initiatives. OWASP is a fantastic place to learn about application security, to network, and even to build your reputation as an expert. We also encourage you to become a member or consider a donation to support our ongoing work.


The OWASP-MSP chapter meets at least quarterly, though does strive to hold meetings monthly. Please see our Meetup page for the latest information.
