Good Evening from Dubai!

We have formed a large OWASP working group across the middle east with many
women leaders aboard to address this initiative. We have done some initial
work and are in the phase of shaping it to a formal framework which can be
used by other chapters.

Lets collaborate on this!

Best,
Dhruv Soi
