Happy Friday!

On November 2nd the OWASP chapter in Portland, Oregon is hosting a training day.
It will include four half-day workshops:

  Cyber Hygiene - Critical Security Controls
    by Brian Ventura

  Introduction to Injection Vulnerabilities
    by Timothy Morgan

  Applied Physical Attacks on Embedded Systems, Introductory Version
    by Joe FitzPatrick

  Fuzzing: Introduction & Practice
    by Adam Russell

After classes conclude, we will also host an evening social hour.  For more
information, see the main event page (a work in progress):
  https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Portland_2016_Training_Day


Our hope for this event has always been to keep costs low for students and to
help fulfill the OWASP mission. (We expect the registration fees to land in the
$10-$40 range, which is about one tenth the cost that these courses would
normally cost.)  We want to ensure those with limited access to this kind of
training could reasonably pay out of pocket if their employers don't support
them.  Our instructors are all volunteering their time, content, and expertise
for the event.  To cover the remaining expenses, we have enlisted a number of
sponsors, so far including:

 GitHub
 New Relic
 Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference
 Simple
 Summit Security Group


However, in order to meet our targets and minimize costs for students, we need
to raise more funds.  We still have sponsorship opportunities available in
the following areas:

 Mixer/Social Hour Sponsorship
 Training Session Sponsorship
 Morning Refreshments Sponsorship
 General Sponsor

Please help spread the word!

If you are interested in more information on the sponsorship packages, please
email me off-list.

Thanks!
