The Sacramento OWASP Chapter promotes the principles of OWASP in our local community with an emphasis on education, local networking opportunities, and fun. Meetings are typically on the last Thursday evening of the month.

MEETING: March 25, 2010, 6-8 pm: Tool Assisted Manual Code Review

TOPIC: Tool Assisted Manual Code Review - Manual Precision with Automated Performance.

Many companies are implementing manual and automated source code review to increase their application security posture and provide evidentiary support of due diligence to meet industry and regulatory requirements such as PCI, HIPPA and SOX. Tool Assisted Manual Code Review combines the contextual understanding and professional experience of a trained security analyst with the brute force power of an automation tool. The presentation will introduce the review process and discuss when it makes sense to use it within the context of the OWASP Top 10. It will also discuss how it affects the cost and quality of an assessment.


Mike Fauzy is a Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) and Sr. Security Engineer with Aspect Security. He has 11 years of combined experience in J2EE development and web application security. He routinely performs both manual and automated code reviews, manual penetration tests, security architecture reviews, SDLC security process integration, and training for major government and industry clients. He is a contributor on OWASP's Enterprise Security Application Programming Interface (ESAPI) and Scrubbr projects. Aspect Security is an avid supporter of OWASP.
