OWASP has frequently been just preaching to the choir, by hosting our own
events, and bringing our message there. One of the things we’ve been trying
to do, is to branch out and bring our message to developers and other IT
professionals at THEIR events, rather than just ours.****

** **

As such, we’ve been trying to partner with other events to get AppSec talks
or even an OWASP organized track into those events, and we’ve had some
success. One of these opportunities is that OWASP has been invited to
organize an OWASP/AppSec track at an IT security event in Ohio on April 18th
.****

The link to the event is here:
https://www.informationsecuritysummit.org/spring/****

** **

The information security summit (ISS) has been organizing IT security
events for 10 years. Their main event is in the fall and attracts about 500
participants. They have recently added a Spring event which attracts about
200 participants. We have been asked to participate in this year’s Spring
event as a prelude to also participating in their major fall event.****

** **

And I, as a board member, agreed to represent OWASP at this event and also
give a talk or two about OWASP. But to fill out the track, we need 2 or 3
other speakers to present as well. Can anyone who is interested drop me a
note directly with the attached CFP filled out describing your proposed
talk. I’m planning on doing a talk on ‘About OWASP’ and all the free
resources we make available to the community, and possibly one on the OWASP
Top 10 for 2013.****

** **

As usual, I am behind schedule. They wanted the speakers selected last
week, but I was too busy working on the 2013 Update to the OWASP Top 10
(among other things).****

** **

If you can get me your abstract by Monday, Feb 11th, I’ll review all the
abstracts I’ve received by then and select 2 or 3 to fill up the OWASP
Track at this event.****

** **

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to jump in on such short notice and
deliver a great AppSec talk in Cleveland in April.****
