About OWASP AppSec USA 2011
OWASP AppSec USA 2011 is an application security conference for information security and development enthusiasts building software - which plays such a vital role in our lives - to be more secure.
OWASP volunteers put on four OWASP Global AppSec web security conference events per year, and the OWASP AppSec USA 2011 conference in Minneapolis was the OWASP Global AppSec North America event!
About the OWASP AppSec USA 2011 Team and OWASP
The OWASP Minneapolis-St. Paul (OWASP MSP) chapter was proud to host OWASP AppSec USA 2011 working with the OWASP Global Conferences Committee and broader application security and development community to provide training, talks, a Capture the Flag (CTF) contest, showroom, and more as OWASP celebrated its 10th anniversary!

The OWASP Foundation came online on December 1, 2001 and was established as a not-for-profit charitable organization in the United States on April 21, 2004 to ensure the ongoing availability and support for our work at OWASP. OWASP is an international organization and the OWASP Foundation supports OWASP efforts around the world. OWASP is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. We advocate approaching application security as a people, process, and technology problem because the most effective approaches to application security include improvements in all of these areas. We can be found at www.owasp.org.
OWASP is a new kind of organization. Our freedom from commercial pressures allows us to provide unbiased, practical, cost-effective information about application security. OWASP is not affiliated with any technology company, although we support the informed use of commercial security technology. Similar to many open-source software projects, OWASP produces many types of materials in a collaborative, open way. The OWASP Foundation is a not-for-profit entity that ensures the project's long-term success.
