Just a reminder that the March OWASP meeting is tonight. Dan Cornell will be speaking on Vulnerability Management. If you plan on attending and have not accepted the meeting invite please do so.  OWASP will not have a snack sponsor for tonight so there will not be any food or beverage supplied at the meeting. There are vending machines in the building, and there is a Subway and a convenience store a couple of blocks down on Hennepin. 
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting, it should be a very good presentation and turn out.
March 16th OWASP Meeting -Dan Cornell
Topic Overview: 
Vulnerability Management in an Application Security World

Identifying application-level vulnerabilities via penetration tests and code reviews is only the first step in actually addressing the underlying risk. Managing vulnerabilities for applications is more challenging than dealing with traditional infrastructure-level vulnerabilities because they typically require the coordination of security teams with application development teams and require security managers to secure time from developers during already-cramped development and release schedules. In addition, fixes require changes to custom application code and application-specific business logic rather than the patches and configuration changes that are often sufficient to address infrastructure-level vulnerabilities.
This presentation details many of the pitfalls organizations encounter while trying to manage application-level vulnerabilities as well as outlines strategies security teams can use for communicating with development teams. Similarities and differences between security teams' practice of vulnerability management and development teams' practice of defect management will be addressed in order to facilitate healthy communication between these groups.
