Virtual Training Platform Available

You ask and OWASP delivers!

We're excited to announce that The OWASP Foundation has added the GoToTraining platform to our arsenal of virtual tools. GoToTraining lets you take advantage of an interactive learning environment where you can post materials (pre course materials, videos, images, class resources), give tests, take polls, and execute small group activities. Classes can be limited in the number of attendees or host as many as 50 students.

We would like to begin to schedule training sessions for delivery as early as April. Do you have a 1 to 4 hour class you would like to present?

Popular Topics for OWASP Training are (in no particular order)

  • XSS
  • XSS Filter Evasion Cheat Sheet
  • XSS Prevention Cheat Sheet
  • ZAP
  • SQL Injection
  • SQL Injection Prevention Cheat Sheet
  • Testing for SQL Injection
  • CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery)
  • CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) Prevention Cheat Sheet
  • and of course, The OWASP Top 10

For Q2, all trainings will be recorded and made available through the OWASP YouTube Channel and links to the recordings will be posted on the relevant pages on the wiki.

If you are a trainer in a non English speaking country and would like to host a training in another language, that would be fantastic!

Any interested trainers, please CONTACT US or reach out to Kate Hartmann directly.

As always, thank you for all you do!

Pycon

PYCON 2016 is coming to the Rose City in Portland, Oregon on May 28th - June 5th!
OWASP Developer Survey ranked PyCon #2

Opportunities to attend in behalf of OWASP

Sign-up Today!


PyCon 2016 has offered us the option to participate and contribute to their Open Spaces and Sprints.

Open Spaces
Open spaces are a way for people to come together to talk about topics, ideas, or whatever they like. They offer groups the ability to self-gather, self-define, and self-organize in a way that often doesn't happen anywhere else at PyCon. Any subject that two or more attendees would like to talk about is a candidate for an Open Space.

How Do I Participate In An Open Space?
It's pretty easy: Just show up :)


During PyCon, there will be Open Spaces boards somewhere near the registration desk. The boards acts as a time table for all the Open Spaces, so you know where and when to go for the Open Spaces you're interested in. If a topic is not listed yet, find an open time slot and add it! Open Spaces topic cards are included in the goodie bag you receive at registration.

What Open Spaces Are There?
There are Open Spaces on many subjects a bunch of PyCon attendees would like to discuss. Since the PyCon attendees are a diverse bunch, so are the Open Spaces. In past years, we've had a mani/pedi party, a feminist hacking space, an AcroYoga space, and a board games room. There's also plenty of the usual suspects of technical subjects, from computer security to your favorite Python project to professional occupations like DevOps.

Where And When Are The Open Spaces?
The Open Spaces are in a set of of dedicated rooms during all three of the conference days (Monday 5/30, Tuesday 5/31, Wednesday 6/1). The rooms may be needed for other events during portions of some days; please consult the Open Spaces boards for the final word on what's going on where.

How Do I Host An Open Space?
For PyCon 2016, we will be using the Open Space cards that were re-introduced a few years back. These are small postcard sized cards with a short explanation of what Open Spaces are. The back side of that card is for hosting Open Spaces. Just fill in the name and a short description of your Open Space, and then pin your card on the Open Space board in the room and time slot you want. It's also a great idea to add your Twitter handle to the card in case anyone interested in attending your Open Space has a question or would like to contact you about it. The cards will be made available in the goodie bag which you will receive at registration. Extra cards will be available at the Open Spaces boards. In order to promote your Open Space we encourage you to tweet about it and use the hashtag #PyConOpenSpaces to make sure people see your tweets.

Planned Open Spaces
If you have an idea for an Open Space, and a time when you want to meet, list it here on this page. It's also useful to add an approximate time slot if you have any preferences, so that attendees know where to look for your Open Space on the Open Spaces boards.

Development Sprints
Thursday, June 2nd 2016 - Sunday, June 5th 2016

Development sprints are a key part of PyCon, and a chance for the contributors to open-source projects to get together face-to-face for up to four days of intensive learning, development and camaraderie. Newbies sit with gurus, go out for lunch and dinner together, and have a great time while advancing their project.

What's New with the Sprints by Naomi Ceder
What are development sprints & why you should attend! by Kushal Das
What's so special about Sprints? by Naomi Ceder
What's A Sprint?

Come for PyCon, stay for the sprints!

PyCon Development Sprints are four days of intensive learning and development on an open source project of your choice, in a team environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project.

In the crucible of a sprint room, teaming with both focus and humor, it's a time to test, fix bugs, add new features, and improve documentation. And it's a time to network, make friends, and build relationships that go beyond the conference.

PyCon provides the space and infrastructure (network, power, tables & chairs); you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer).
Please sign up on the PyCon 2016 Sign Up Sheet. If you are interested in attending in behalf of OWASP.

PROJECTS: SAMM Summit in NYC, Plus More Project News and Releases
SAMM Summit in NYC, April 20-21

We are excited to announce our second SAMM Summit on April 20-21 in New York!

The SAMM Summit is not a regular conference with speaking slots, but a summit "in OWASP Style (!)". We will work together in a 2-day sprint on SAMMv2.

If you are interested to contribute, you are most welcome!
  1. Either you bring in your knowledge of SAMM or other secure development methodology experience.
  2. Or as OWASP Project leader/contributor you research how we can better integrate SAMM with your project (and the other way around).
This is an excellent opportunity to influence the direction of SAMM and exchange experiences with your peers!

Testimonial from 2015:


"The SAMM summit provided an opportunity to breathe new life into a framework that I use to facilitate my day-to-day work and support my customers." Bruce C Jenkins, Fortify Security Lead, Hewlett-Packard Company

In the next weeks/months before the Summit we will create the SAMMv2 Product Backlog as basis towards the on-site Summit 2-day sprint (keep an eye on our mailing list - https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/samm).

For more information - check out the cool venue in SoHo! - and registration (free), goto: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_SAMM_Summit_2016

CHAPTERS: New Chapters, Leader Transitions, Meeting Ideas for 2016

Notable Chapter Activity


On the heels of the recent Bsides event in Lagos, Nigeria, our OWASP Nigeria chapter held its first local chapter meeting in Lagos on February 13. The team posted some pictures on the OWASP Lagos Facebook page: on.fb.me/1TsBofq


OWASP Nigeria plans to hold another event in Lagos this April with a goal toward inviting more external speakers, growing participation via social media and finding additional ways to contribute to application security awareness outside Nigeria. Keep an eye on this chapter!

OWASP Kerala has been conducting regular awareness talks for students and public. Enjoy some pictures from the past 4 events we organized in the past month at:
  • Institution of Engineers, Kerala State Centre
  • Trivandrum Tamil Sangham
  • Sarabhai Institute of Science and Technology
  • TKM College of Engineering

The audience varied from students ( in the engineering Colleges ) to senior and retired engineers ( at Institution of Engineers ) to general public ( at Trivandrum Tamil Sangham ). We are happy to see that people are receptive to security awareness and there's great response from their side and repeated requests.
