Chapter Meetings

The August chapter meeting has been postponed. I will announce the details shortly.

Please note that access to Level 5, where the meeting is held will require security access after 6pm.

Please join us for an evening of discussions on Web Application Security and great networking opportunities! Hope to see you all there!


The August meeting will be held at:

IBM Brisbane Office

Level 5 Meeting Room, 348 Edward St, Brisbane.


Greg Pedley from IBM has kindly volunteered to present at the August chapter meeting. Below is a brief on Greg's presentation.

My name is Greg Pedley and I work for IBM. I have come to Australia from Canada where I had spent 4 years living and breathing web application security. I had become a part of the IBM Software Group via an acquisition of an organization called Watchfire, a leader in automation software. I intend to take a half hour of your time to discuss my experience within Web Application Security over the last 5+ years. I have a unique knowledge of this space from a sales perspective, but my intention is not to sell software. I'd like to have an open presentation / discussion about the progression of web application security, previous and current trends, black box vs. white box methods, etc.

I look forward to meeting everyone.
