Often, when we approach potential presenters, we tend to get the following response – “I don’t think my topic is interesting enough”.  We just want to stress that as long as the topic is security related – we’re all ears!  We’re just a bunch of nice people wanting to learn/share our knowledge of the security domain.  So if you would like to present or know of someone that does, please contact us.

This time, i have something really interesting i want to share with all the Brisbane Chapter Members. With my job change i have been working on a new program called Business Software Assurance. This is a Maturity Model for organisations to adopt for application security and is something being promoted globally but also through OWASP.

In his spare time he dabbles in a number of security (and non-security) software projects, including the BeEF framework.

Ben will present how to use a number of OWASP tools, including OpenSAMMM, ZAP as well as some home-grown initiatives, to win over developers and management as part of a lightweight and agile application security program.
