Next week I will be attending two free United Kingdom OWASP events, and providing a full talk at one of them.
On Tuesday 2nd December, I will speak for the first time at OWASP Cambridge about OWASP Cornucopia, the ecommerce website security requirement card game. Jerome Smith will present a second talk about a SSL Checklist for Pentesters.
Also at the event in Cambridge I will briefly mention the somewhat less serious application security awareness board game OWASP Snakes and Ladders and will be handing out free copies to everyone attending, kindly paid for by the OWASP Cambridge chapter. We will have time after the presentations to play both Cornucopia and Snakes and Ladders. On the subject of Snakes and Ladders, this week volunteers Yongliang He, Cédric Messeguer, Riotaro Okada and Ivy Zhang have generously translated the game for web applications into Chinese, French and Japanese.
Please register in advance for the free event in Cambridge The meeting will be held in the Lord Ashcroft Building, Room LAB003; 17:00 for a prompt start at 17:30 hrs.
On Thursday 4th December, OWASP London is holding its final event of the year in Skype's offices at 2 Waterhouse Square, 140 Holborn, London, EC1N 2ST, 18:00 for 18:30 hrs start. Christian Martorella will be talking about Offensive Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) — the process, techniques and how attackers are using it to prepare their cyber attacks. Afterwards project leader Matteo Meucci will speak about the new OWASP Testing Guide v4.
Then, as in Cambridge, I will mention OWASP Snakes and Ladders, with printed copies available for everyone, but this time paid for by the London chapter.
Please remember to register for OWASP London on Thursday 4th December.
There are numerous other UK OWASP chapters — join their mailing lists to be informed of future meetings.
Seeking a bigger application security event? In January OWASP London will be organising a cyber security week, and AppSec EU 2015 is being held in Amsterdam next May. The call for research, papers and trainers for the latter are now open.
