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: April 29, 2010, 6-8 pm: The Secure Software Development Lifecycle

TOPIC: The Secure Software Development Lifecycle. Come to this meeting if you want to learn (and discuss) how to bake security into your applications as they are created. We will examine the current maturity models and methodologies (CLASP, SDL, 7 Touchpoints, OpenSAMM, BSI-MM) and talk about how these work out in the real world. The focus will be on high-value, low drag activities that are practical for most development teams. Peripheral issues will also be considered, such as how to get management on board; how traditional information security professionals can work with development teams; dealing with legacy applications; and how to separate the real threats from the security busywork.

SPEAKER BIO Roman Hustad has been an enterprise software developer in Sacramento for most of the past ten years. Most recently he was a Principal Consultant at Foundstone where he specialized in application security by performing code reviews, threat models, and teaching secure programming. Roman is a regular presenter at local chapters of OWASP, ISSA, ISACA, and Java User Groups. He is currently a local Java development lead in the financial services industry.
