Talk: Building a secure SDLC utilising OWASP resources

In this presentaion Jason will show how the free and open resources of OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) can be utilised to initially measure the current status and maturity of security within your software development life cycle and then drive improvements at every stage. From setting security requirements and implementing standards to developer training, software testing and all importantly measuring results.

Speaker: Jason Alexander - Security Architect - KPMG

Open mic: bring a topic!

As suggested at the last meeting we're going to have a section where anyone can stand up and talk (or start a discussion) for up to (say) 5 mins about any security topic they like.

You can either put your name forward via the mailing list before hand or just speak up at the meeting.

Its the first time we'll have tried it, so no idea how it will work out, but it sounded like a good idea :)

If you would like to talk at future meetings then please get in touch via the mailing list or one of the chapter leaders.

Everyone is welcome to join us at our chapter meetings.
