Happy New Year everyone!! This month, as part of a 2 year traditional, I'll be leading the next OWASP meeting and presenting on a medley of different OWASP projects, tools, and frameworks that you can use out of the box. We will most likely convene at the Tilted Kilt off of Cobb Pkwy so save the date of January 27,2010. Looking forward to seeing everyone there and please spread the word amongst your work and school settings so that we can further the education on what OWASP has to offer.
Staying in Touch
There is an OWASP Atlanta Linkedin Group. For those addicted to LinkedIn, we have a group you can further feed your addiction. The OWASP Atlanta Chapter. http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=1811960&trk=anet_ug_hm

On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to solicit your financial support of our chapter via a tax deductible membership for OWASP as a great non-profit organization which aims to elevate web application security.

More detailed results will be provided and discussed briefly during our first meeting, April 2nd, 2009.

ABSTRACT:: Separated By A Common Language
George Bernard Shaw said that about the US and England. And there’s perhaps nowhere in Information Security where that is more true than in Web App Sec. Though business people and geeks use a common language, we don’t have a common understanding. It’s not what’s said; it’s what’s heard that counts! It’s not enough to just understand the words, the listener has to understand the concepts and how they are put into practice. This talk goes through these challenges on both sides of the equation and gives a framework that can even give a CEO a working knowledge of the OWASP Top 10.
COST: Free to all.
