OWASP Meeting and “Swiss Security Dinner”

The people who know me, also know that I’m the actual leader of the OWASP Switzerland Local Chapter and that’s why I also write something about the next meeting, which would be a little bit special.

We at the OWASP Switzerland Local Chapter would like to get in touch with other groups and individuals in Switzerland, which/who are also interested in application security and/or security at all for having some information exchange, discussions or just some fun. Because of this, we would like to do a meeting and afterwards go to a “Swiss Security Dinner” and everyone who’s interested is kindly invited. Following you’ll find some more information:

Date and time:
26. April 2007
Meeting 17:00-19:00
Dinner 19:00-??:??

There was a voting pool to find the date which’s best for most of the interested people. The voting’s finished now to find the date but if you would like to attend to the meeting and the dinner, please also give your vote to the 26. April 2007 because of the reservation in the restaurant. The voting pool will be closed on the 16. April 2007 and if you decide to come later then this date, please send me a mail directly.

Here’s the voting pool:

Where (Meeting):
Zurich Financial Services
Mythenquai 2 / Zurich

Where (Dinner):
This is not fixed yet because it’s still able to register through the voting pool but I think it would be an Italian restaurant because there everyone should find something he/she likes.

Who:
As at all of our meetings, everyone is welcome, so if you know someone who could also be interested in participate, ask him/her to come too :)

What (Meeting):
There will be a presentation about risk metrics by Dr. Brian Chess which’s the CTO and founder of Fortify Software. I’m really looking forward to his talk because I already had a look on his presentation slides and it’s interesting stuff. Before and after the presentation there would be some smalltalk or discussions I think and especially after, we can also go somewhere to have an appetizer before the dinner.

Remember that it’s important, that anyone who would like to come votes on the voting pool because we should know how many people attending to the meeting and especially the dinner for do the reservation.

If there are any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask :)
