2009 was a great year aimed at re-generating some interest for the OWASP movement. We hope to build on this in 2010 and need some help in doing so. If you have some extra cycles and would like to submit a proposal for speaking or hosting a workshop, please don't hesitate to contact us (see Chapter Leads tab below). This year, we hope to see some new faces and would like to get the year started by talking about the new OWASP Top Ten and how to apply them within your application development, testing, or assessment efforts.
On behalf of the chapter, 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. Please note that other chapters have the luxury to charge their members for attending some of their meetings. We hope that you find historical and future meetings to be of value and show support via a member based contribution. To contribute to OWASP-Atlanta, go here: <paypal>Atlanta Georgia</paypal>
Our next meeting is on January 28th, 2010. In this meeting, we will cover the latest release of OWASP Top Ten (2010). Please check the Chapter Meetings tab for more information
