OWASP-MSP Upcoming Chapter meeting

When: Thursday, June 18th @ 6:30 - 7:45 PM

Title: Put Down the Megaphone: Effective Security Advocacy Without All The Shouting

The Information Security community understands the importance of advocacy. We know we need to change people’s ways of thinking and working if we’re to make real progress. But the tool we seem to reach for is the megaphone: when breaches happen or serious bugs get found, we get (understandably) shouty. The thing is, that hasn’t been so effective, but what else can we do? Put Down The Megaphone explores this problem and offers a framework for effective advocacy based on research and backed by hard-won experience.

Speaker: Darren Meyer, Senior Security Researcher with Veracode

Darren P Meyer is an Application Security advocate and researcher, technology hobbyist, and maker. He loves to learn, teach, nerd out, and inflict terrible puns on people. His professional background includes logistics, software development, and various aspects of Information Security in organizations ranging from small businesses to Fortune 50 retailers. Darren is currently a Senior Security Researcher with Veracode, where he’s focused on static testing and cloud security.
