We've been busy planning in the background and have developed a schedule for the year so future meetings should be announced well ahead. For May we've 3 speakers so please be prompt so we can fit them in. We've scheduled 30 minutes for each talk, allowing 10 for a QA (after or during as per each speakers request).
Many thanks to both PwC (@PwC_North) for providing the conference room, and NCC (@NCCGroupplc) are sponsoring beer and pizza for the evening ;)
As with past meetings, our hosts, PwC have strict security requirements. Registration is mandatory and I ask that PwC staff wishing to attend please register also so we can track the numbers.
18:45 Andy Hornsby-Jones Andy's bio line probably best introduces this:"I also like to break things." Andy has a tool talk covering some of the methods used to identify vulnerabilities and exploit them.
19:30 Matt Summers (NCC) - Matt's research into website & online reputation identified a need to gauge how far a site considered 'safe' such as maybe the BBC was from links to known malware. He's been developing the tool and wants to introduce it to the chapter.
20:15 (tbc) PwC Penetration tester - PwC's information security team has been busy with the topical heartbleed and is going to look at some methods used to detect the vulnerability, (if the demo works) detect attempts to exploit the vulnerability and share some of the defence mechanism's.
21:00 - Britons Protection, Vine Inn or City Arms for extended networking...
Finally, OWASP is a non-commercial volunteer led organisation, if you find the networking, talks or content useful, please consider whether you can help out in providing facilities, locations, talks or a donation to the cause. thanks.
