There are 4 pending chapters, only one has provided the complete information
as outlined by the Handbook.  Once I have a second approval for this
chapter, I will set it up.  Thanks.

 

Chapter Name: OWASP Sharqiyah 

 

Founding member and the geographical area to be covered by the new chapter:-


Founding member: Muhanad Shahat

Area: Eastern province (Ash Sharqiyah) of Saudi Arabia 

 

Background:

I work at Saudi Aramco Oil Company as Systems engineers. I have been
interested in the security field since long time ago and launched a local
community for Information Security Awareness called "White Hats Community"
www.whit3hats.com. We do Web Application penetration testing from time to
time and post security related articles. Also we run an active twitter
account "@whitehatscom" where we try ro spread awareness and tips in
Information Security in general. 

 

Statement of why to be an OWASP Leader:

I am a person fond of sharing knowledge and OWASP is a great way to achieve
that. Web application development is booming in our area and developers
should be educated and informed about the security vulnerability. It is
amazing how developers just ignore or don't consider security until
something happen. I am trying to change that by holding this local OWASP
chapter in my area and sharing the great contents of this organization.
