Great few meetings thus far in 2011 with many more cool things to come. Part of what is on deck is virtual meetings, more workshops, and web application security pros who know how to get to the detail of issues that matter most.
We're on a little summer break due to all of the cons that are going on. We will resume meetings in August where we begin the after summer break with a talk on Mobile App Security and Web App Sec implications - an event not to miss. Stay tuned for more.
FYI - We are trying to reach out to more developers, quality assurance engineers, and software architects so if you have colleagues in those areas, please invite them to come. For next meeting information, please visit the Chapter Meetings tab and RSVP in the link provided.

2011 OWASP Atlanta Member Survey
The Atlanta OWASP Member Survey has come and gone. Thanks to all those that responded. A subset of the results is shown below in the form of top ranking security topics that members wish to see in 2011.
May 2011 Meeting
WHAT:: May Chapter Meeting - 'Don't teach developers security'
WHEN:: 19th of May 2011. 6-8pm
WHERE:: Tilted Kilt http://tinyurl.com/4oh2thj
WHO:: Caleb Sima (Founder of WebInspect and CEO of Armorize)
ABSTRACT:: (Abstract from speaker) The general message preached for the past couple of years is that developers need to learn security and training developers in security will give us vulnerability-free code. This presentation is will destroy that myth and put forth that this is the WRONG way of creating secure code. It's time to simplify the secure development process.
The attendee will walk away with real and practical knowledge of how to implement and create a secure coding practice that won't take more than a week to become effective. They will understand that it is no longer, nor should it have been, development adapting to security. It's the other way around - they as security can adapt to development and provide real-world practical risk management without impacting the development process. Attendees will also get a demonstration of how technology today is based on remediation/fixing, and no longer focused on detection and alerting.
COST: Free to all. Bring a Friend.
