**** We are nearing capacity for this event! Remember to release your slot
if you can no longer make it by replying to this email. Also, we've had a
slight change of topic for Jim, and he has something even more interesting
to talk about! ****

This is a reminder for the forthcoming OWASP Central London chapter meeting
to be held next Thursday (March 29th) at 6:30pm-8:30pm (show up at venue
between 6:00pm-6:30pm).  We have a special treat in the form of an
international OWASP Speaker being in town (Jim Manico) who has kindly agreed
to speak. 

We're at a new location this time, at Morgan Stanley who have kindly agreed
to let us use their facilities:

- Morgan Stanley, 25 Cabot Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 4QA (Wordsworth
and Yeats rooms, Level 12)

**** note - this is NOT the Morgan Stanley building you can see from the
Jubilee line - make sure you go to the correct building! (off Cabot Square)

As always, we should have plenty of time to talk and network, and should
have some time after the talks to have some more chatting time as well
and/or head out to a local pub afterwards.

Even though this meeting is free and open to all, if you are planning to
attend you must RSVP at http://owasp-london.eventbrite.com. Please enter
your real name, as this will be given to Morgan Stanley building security.
If you don't RSVP, you may not be let into the building. Also note that
RSVPs close the day before the event (so we can get names on the door), so
make sure you RSVP in advance.

Also, if you are no longer able to attend, please email Justin at
justin.clarke at owasp.org so your space can be released for someone else.


? Top Ten Web Defences - Jim Manico
We cannot hack or firewall our way secure. Application programmers need to
learn to code in a secure fashion if we have any chance of providing
organizations with proper defenses in the current threatscape. This talk
will discuss the 10 most important security-centric computer programming
techniques necessary to build low-risk web based applications.

? IronWASP - Manish Saindane
IronWASP (Iron Web application Advanced Security testing Platform) is an
open source system for web application vulnerability testing. It is designed
to be customizable to the extent where users can create their own custom
security scanners using it. Though an advanced user with Python/Ruby
scripting expertise would be able to make full use of the platform, a lot of
the tool's features are simple enough to be used by absolute beginners.


? Jim Manico is the VP of Security Architecture for WhiteHat Security, a web
security firm. Jim is a participant and project manager of the OWASP
Developer Cheatsheet series. He is also the producer and host of the OWASP
Podcast Series.
? Manish Saindane is a Senior Security Consultant at Gotham Digital Science.
He also co-authors a security research website and blog http://andlabs.org.
He has actively contributed towards conceptualising IronWASP and also
maintains the Ruby plug-in repository for this framework.

As always, the details and schedule for the night will be available on the
chapter page (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/London).

See you there!
