Robert, Anuj and Mark are starting the Edmonton chapter.
On September 12, 2006 we will hold our first formal meeting. Anuj will talk on OWASP's Top Ten project. The main page for this project says, "The OWASP Top Ten provides a minimum standard for web application security. The OWASP Top Ten represents a broad consensus about what the most critical web application security flaws are." [And if I knew anything about MediaWiki I would give you a link to that page!]
Time and coordinates for the meeting TBD. Probably downtown at the end of the workday.
