About the Conference / What You Need To Know

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Los Angeles Chapter is teaming up with the Orange County, Santa Barbara and San Diego chapters to bring you the third 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.

A full day of training on various subjects by expert trainers kicks off the conference on the 25th. World renowned speakers follow on days two and three.

A great Opening Reception spills onto the beautiful deck of the landmark Marion Davies House on day two, as conference goers network, drink, and eat as they listen to the waves and make new friends under the stars.

New friendships will be born, new techniques for securing your environments and applications will be shared, as you become inspired by your peers.

So, ask yourself: “Do I want to go to the office, or would I rather go to the beach for three days? “ If you live in the north, would you rather try to dig your car out some fine January mornings, or go to the beach? Go ahead, make your day!

Venue / Where's it At?

The event takes place January 25-27 on  Santa Monica State Beach in California at the Annenberg Community Beach House. 

Annenberg Community Beach House

415 Pacific Coast Hwy, Santa Monica, CA 90402

The 5-acre oceanfront site was originally developed during the Gold Coast era of the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst for actress Marion Davies. The Davies estate featured a mansion of 100-plus rooms and an ornate marble swimming pool. It was a hot spot, with Hearst and Davies entertaining luminaries from the Hollywood set, such as Charlie Chaplin, Louis B. Mayer, Samuel Goldwyn, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable and other stars of the day.
