Spring Meeting & Membership Drive
Hope you’re all surviving winter! We’re currently working toward scheduling our next meeting for the last week of March, to usher in Spring! We’ll send out another email and update the website when we have a more solid date, time, and location lined up.
Also, we are keen to expand the Pittsburgh chapter’s membership. If you’ve been attending the meetings and would like to see more meetings, more content (more food?), we’d urge you to consider joining at either the personal level or consider the value of having your business becoming a Corporate member.
A one year Individual Membership is just $50, and helps fund the chapter.
A one year Corporate Supporter Membership is $5000.00, and organizations that wish to support OWASP can make a 100% tax deductible donation. These funds are used to enable the OWASP Foundation mission supporting Projects enabling & Grants and receiving discounts at OWASP Conferences for employees to attend and if exhibiting.
To join, please click the link above on this page!
We hope you’ll join us, and help keep the chapter growing so that we can provide content. Also, if there are specific topics you’d like for March’s chapter meeting (or speakers, for that matter!) please let us know.
December Chapter Meeting
This December's Chapter Meeting will be a lunchtime roundtable scheduled for NOON-1:30 PM Thursday, December 13th, 2012. After all, how can we not enjoy the awesomeness of a date following 12/12/12!? If we have enough advance interest and registration, we will have the session catered with a Taco Bar – (somewhat) in keeping with a Mayan Calendar theme. If we've survived the end of the world, we might as well have a good time while we discuss security…
The subject of the roundtable will be a fairly general one: The Application Security Lifecycle- From Planning to Testing to Fixing, and Back Again. We’d like to hear from a wide variety of viewpoints, including project managers, developers, ethical hackers/pen testers, network/infrastructure specialists and general security folks.
This will also provide us all a great opportunity to get to know other members of the community, and to get the Pittsburgh chapter rolling along into the New Year (presuming the Mayans were wrong!).
If you are planning to join us please e-mail the Pittsburgh Chapter's mailing list to reserve your seat!
Location Info: 525 William Penn Place, downtown Pittsburgh. When entering the building please register with security and then make your way to the 11th floor we will be in room 1120.
