ISG OWASP Seminar - Thursday 8th September 2011

RHULOn Thursday 8th September the ISG and OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) will hold a joint seminar at Royal Holloway. Daniel Cuthbert will be giving a talk entitled 'Doing it for the Lulz: Why Lulzsec has shown us to be an ineffective industry.'

Daniel Cuthbert is one of the Open Web Application Security Project Leaders and the Assessment manager for SensePost. He has been researching, and involved, with web application security since the late 90’s and has worked on a wide range of projects to ensure that the development life cycle is secure and the overall application can withstand today’s hackers.

The ISG / Owasp meetings offer an excellent opportunity to invite a leading industry expert to present, giving value to both our current MSc students and for our network of alumni. In addition it allows us to build on the existing relationship with OWASP (both founders, Mark Curphey and Dennis Groves are MSc alumni). From OWASP's perspective, it offers another route for them to achieve their goal of information sharing, and it also provided a chance to bring together academia and industry in a casual but informative atmosphere.

The seminar will be held in Bourne Lecture Theatre 1 at Royal Holloway, University of London on Thursday 8th September 2011 from 6pm. For further details, please email Dennis Groves
