Unlike traditional conferences with unidirectional presentations, this 5-day event will be a high-energy experience, during which attendees will work and collaborate intensively. Each working session is geared towards actionable outcomes for a specific Application Security challenge.

The event is split over several tracks, each focusing on a specific set of challenges. Including:

Threat Modeling

Security Crowdsourcing

Security Playbooks

Mobile Security


Agile AppSec


Owasp Projects

Summit participants are directly shaping the future of Application Security and setting new standards for 2017. Each working session will produce something tangible and usable by the AppsSec, Security, and OWASP communities, including white papers, code, action-plans, and more. Participants come from major security and development teams, service and product providers, and research organisations worldwide. This is the place to learn and collaborate with industry peers-and competitors.

A key factor of the OWASP Summit's high-level productivity and collaboration is the venue, Woburn Forest Center Parcs, an environment designed for maximum geek-time. Participants will be accommodated in Woodland Lodges and can immerse themselves in Application and Cyber Security conversations and debates around the clock.

Five-day summit tickets start from £400 without accommodation or £1,200 including a 4-night stay in Woodland Lodges. Group discounts and one-day tickets are also available; for more information and to register go to http://owaspsummit.org.

The OWASP Summit is the largest concentration of AppSec and Security talent focused on solving problems in 2017. The question is: Will you be there?
