The Authors

George Capehart

George has been working in computing since DEC, Data General, Texas Instruments and Wang were making minicomputers, tape was made of paper and /dev/tty really was a TeleType machine. Over his career he has been exposed to just about every aspect of IT systems and has done everything from crimping cable to leading an IT group. For the last five years, George has done international consulting focusing on the impact of the paradigm shift induced by the emergence of e-business and EAI on business and technical operations, the risk and trust management issues that accompany this shift, and the implications of all of these for systems security engineering, the risk management process, and the SDLC.

Jeff is the CEO of Aspect Security, a leading provider of application security services including security code review, penetration testing, secure development training, and security engineering services. Jeff speaks regularly about application security and leads the Top Ten project for OWASP. In addition, Aspect created WebGoat, and donated it to OWASP to help the community learn about application security.
