Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be on 12 June from 6-9pm at the Booz Allen Herndon facility.

We have lined up David Wheeler to talk about the security of Open Source Software. David is very active in the community (see and I'm very pleased to have him as a speaker for our chapter.

"Protecting your applications from backdoors", Shawn Hank from Veracode. Backdoors and malicious code pose operational risk to software at a level too significant for organizations to ignore. The common practices of outsourcing and using third-party libraries are making modern application development increasingly complex. As a result, it is nearly impossible for an enterprise to identify the pedigree and security level of the software running their business-critical applications and handling their customers' personally identifiable information. Shawn will discuss different attack and detection methods.

Pizza will be provided for a small fee. If you plan on attending, RSVP so I can get you badge processing started.
