Local News

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.

Chapter Meetings

Next Brisbane Chapter Meeting - October 09, 2012

In October's OWASP Brisbane Chapter meeting, Peter Mosmans will present a session titled "Failing it Right?".

"Over the years I was fortunate enough to work for interesting, mainly European clients. My stories as pentester and security officer are not all stories of success. On the contrary, a lot of things have gone wrong. A big lot of things, and a lot of wrong. For me, legal disclaimers are worth their weight in gold.

I would like to share these failures as pentester with you - because there are already so many people who are successful."

Bio: Peter Mosmans started out as builder working for various financial institutions as software engineer in the nineties. From 2000 onwards he began focusing on defending servers and web applications as a network and systems engineer.

The last decade was spent trying to break the security of web apps of various companies around the world - of course when asked to do so.

Originally from The Netherlands, he moved to beautiful sunny Australia in 2011.

Venue: Red Hat, Level 1, 193 North Quay, Brisbane.

Time: 5:30pm for a 6pm start. Access to the building will be restricted after 6pm. Please arrive before then!

Close: Session is expected to be completed by 7:30pm.

RSVP: Online at

There will be a social gathering at a local hostelry afterwards. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Note: We're going to aim for quarterly meetings to suit the availability of speakers and our busy schedules. Watch this space and the mailing list for details of the next meeting!
