Hi All,

Thanks to Justin Foster, It was mistakenly noted in the first note sent
earlier that the meeting is on a Tuesday, November 4th, which is wrong
because Nov 4th is a *Wednesday*. Please update your calendars. The correct
date is *Wednesday, November 4th, 2009*. Apologize for any inconvenience
this might have caused.

*Did you RSVP yet?*, please RSVP by sending an email to *
owasp.ottawa at gmail.com* with your name, company and number of attendees.

> through useful activities such as assessing an assurance program, mapping an
> existing organization to a recommended roadmap, and iteratively building an
> assurance program. Time allowing, additional case studies will also be
> discussed. OpenSAMM is an open a free project and has recently been donated
> to the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Foundation. For more
