I'm hoping to nail down a date for a meeting in Sept.  I have the OWASP
conference in NYC where I will be presenting, and a couple onsite
engagements so I'm trying to put a date on my calendar so I'm available.

We shouldn't have a problem getting a meeting space. I know BE&K has already
agreed to allow us to meet @ their offices.

Would also like to put together a monthly Capture The Flag (CTF) style
meetings using the OWASP CTF project.

After a long talk Brad has decided to accept the role as Vice-President for
the Alabama OWASP Chapter. Brad is a supporter of OWASP and has commented on
the value it provides for him and his team when dealing with today's
Application Security issues.


Brad and I will be working on setting up the first public chapter meeting in
the coming months. We already have speaker proposals from Foundstone,
WhiteHat Security, and potentially Chris Nickerson from the "tiger team" tv


I may also present on the LiveCD and release a special version before my
talk at this year's OWASP NYC conference.  www.


I'm working on getting Red Bull as a sponsor for the NYC and may get them to
come out to our meeting with some free beverages if you guys are interested.


We are looking for a meeting space as well as refreshment sponsors for our
upcoming meetings as well. I have no problem sponsoring the first couple
meetings until we have some interested vendors/ organizations. (*remember-
any vendor talks must not be a sales pitch, but we allow you to place
materials and banners in the refreshment area).


Some talk ideas:

AJAX / Web 2.0 Security

.NET Code Review Methodology

Phishing Attacks and Prevention



In order to make this chapter grow we need to hear from you. My contact
details are below.


( I have been working on a code review and app hack for 2 days straight some
hopefully all this babble makes sense)
