Thanks to all who attended our holiday event in December. We were able to collect several great ideas and feedback from attendees for our 2011 planning efforts. If you have any suggestions, please email the chapter leader or bring them to the next meeting which is due to be in January where the chapter leader will cover practical applications of OWASP tools for the enterprise.

Staying in Touch

There is an OWASP Atlanta Linkedin Group. For those addicted to LinkedIn, we have a group you can further feed your addiction. The OWASP Atlanta Chapter.

On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to solicit your financial support of chapter via a tax deductible membership for a great non-profit organization which aims to elevate web application security.

ABSTRACT:: Separated By A Common Language

George Bernard Shaw said that about the US and England. And there’s perhaps nowhere in Information Security where that is more true than in Web App Sec. Though business people and geeks use a common language, we don’t have a common understanding. It’s not what’s said; it’s what’s heard that counts! It’s not enough to just understand the words, the listener has to understand the concepts and how they are put into practice. This talk goes through these challenges on both sides of the equation and gives a framework that can even give a CEO a working knowledge of the OWASP Top 10.


COST: Free to all.
