The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Los Angeles Chapter is teaming up with the Orange County, San Diego, SF Bay Area, and the Inland Empire chapters to bring you the FIFTH Annual AppSec California. The event is a one of a kind experience for information security professionals, developers, and QA and testing professionals, as they gather at the beach from around the world to learn and share knowledge and experiences about secure systems and secure development methodologies.
