New chapter requests:

I have received the following requests for new chapters and gathered the
supporting documentation.  Please approve:

1.  South Wales:


I wish to create a new OWASP chapter for the South Wales region within the
UK. The main cities that are to be covered would consist of Swansea (where I
am resident), Cardiff, Newport, Bridgend amongst others.

The chapter is to be founded by myself. I am a senior security consultant
for the NCC Group and specialise in [and is very passionate about] web
application and mobile device security. I have over five years of related
professional experience of which 1.5 of them is in a penetration testing

I am a CHECK Team Leader and a CREST Certificated Tester (apps). I also hold
a PgD and BSc[Hons] in Computer Systems Security from the University of
Glamorgan. Further details can be found on LinkedIn:

The reason I want to be the chapter leader is due to the fact that I believe
strongly in the need for raising security awareness within local communities
and the sharing of knowledge. The best ideas and projects stem from local
peer groups of like minded individuals. South Wales has a number of talented
professionals and hobbyists who could greatly benefit from being part of an
organized group and together work to not just fulfill our own intellectual
needs but to help local business become aware of the very real security
threats. I am a confident person who is great at engaging all types of
people and getting them passionate about web application security.

He has acknowledged that he has read and will abide by the CLH

2.  Houston

Founders: Paul Scott, Anthony Francone
Organization: Houston OWASP Chapter
Geography: Greater Houston
I, Anthony Francone, would like to be an OWASP Chapter Leader to provide
people of all skill levels the opportunites to excel in their growth,
knowledge, networking, and OWASP core values both as a team and individually
I, Paul Scott, would like to be an OWASP Chapter Leader because it is
important to me that Houstonians interested in web application security have
a place to increase their knowledge and a community to share their
experience with. I would like to organize OWASP meeting so I can ensure
interesting and interactive OWASP events that will revive the OWASP
community here in Houston.
