Hi All,

This is the last reminder to RSVP to Pravir Chandra's presentation tomorrow
at 5:45 PM @ Trend Micro: 40 Hines Road, Kanata

*Why is this a unique opportunity?*
- Security into the SDLC is one of the harder to tackle/speak about topics.
- It does not happen every day that we get one of our own OWASP Project
- Pravir is the creator of one of the flag ships of OWASP - OpenSAMM
- He is also the director of strategic services in Fortify so he combines
both worlds.

*Why you might want to come tomorrow?*
- A chance to have a one-on-one chat with Pravir after the meeting
- Great talk
- Likely minded people
- A chance to network with Ottawa's top security professionals.
- And don't forget.....hot pizza and spicy wings :)

If you haven't yet. *RSVP *now by sending an email to *
owasp.ottawa at gmail.com* with your name, company and number of attendees

>> *Software Assurance Maturity Model (OpenSAMM)* The Software Assurance

>> quantitative improvements through iterations of building a security
>> assurance program. This workshop will introduce the SAMM framework and walk
>> 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
