Presenters and Presentations
We are forever looking for volunteers to present at the chapter meetings, so if you've seen something interesting or you have something to say, please let us know.
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.
Presentations must be vendor agnostic (no selling of products or services), and please review the Speaker Agreement linked above.
Next Brisbane Chapter Meeting - March 5, 2013
Hello everyone! We hope you've all had a fantastic start to the year!
We will be starting 2013 with Scott Brown presenting at March's Brisbane OWASP chapter meeting.
Scott is a Brisbane local who cut his security teeth in the Banking and Finance industry. He's held various roles over the years, including software development, software security, access and identity management, network and network security. Scott's now fighting the good fight, working for CERT Australia.
Scott will present on two topics that have had a real impact on Australian based businesses, both in terms of reputation and dollars. Ransomware and VOIP fraud have both made the media several times in the last few months. Come along to hear a little more about both topics and some recommendations to avoid falling victim to either.
Venue: Red Hat Offices, Level 1, 193 North Quay, Brisbane.
Time: 5:30pm for a 6pm start. Lifts to Level 1 will be locked after 6pm. Please arrive before then!

Close: Session is expected to be completed by 7:30pm.
RSVP: There are limited seats. Please RSVP at http://owasp-brisbane.eventbrite.com
There will be a social gathering at a local hostelry afterwards. Everyone is welcome to attend!
