Just a reminder - 

Presentations Topic - OWASP Exams Project 

Presenter - Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation 

Ed Adams will present on the new OWASP Exams Project and the work being
done by the OWASP Academies Working Group. This group has already
created a set of exam questions that can be used by universities and
industry alike to test knowledge in web application security. Ed will
walk through the questions and answers, and there'll be some giveaways
if you know the answer or even try. 

The project also has a set of rich technical content, which Ed will
review in detail with the group, including a new self-paced
computer-based training course on OWASP Top 10. Ed will also discuss and
demonstrate the new open source tool that was offered to the OWASP
Community as part of the Exams Project - TeamMentor OWASP Edition. 

There'll be lots of technical content as well as meta information on how
to use and find this new OWASP technical content, and we'll have a bit
of fun in the process. 

Speaker Bio Mr. Adams is the founder and business owner of the
Application Security Industry Consortium, Inc., an association of
industry technologists and leaders establishing and defining
cross-industry application security guidance and metrics. He is on the
