9 OWASP Why is OWASP the right approach “The OWASP mission is to make application security visible. Creating transparency goes directly to the heart of what is wrong with the software market and has the potential to actually change the game.” “In many ways, we’re like public radio. This allows us to reach a very broad audience and it makes it possible for us to avoid difficult commercial relationships that influence our activities. This freedom from commercial pressures allows us to provide unbiased, practical, cost-effective information about application security”
