January's speaker will be Fred McFeeter of F5 Networks! He will be speaking about four types of bot activity, how they might be treated differently and the business impact.
* Data Mining
* Network Probing
* Metric Manipulation
* Transaction Fraud
Fred has worked in IT in Kansas City for the last 14 years. I spent most of the last 6 years working as an application engineer, for the second largest federal health insurance provider. Prior to that I spent 5 years as a Linux engineer in managed hosting companies. I joined F5 networks last November as a sales engineer and have had the chance to see first-hand real world problems from businesses across nearly every type of industry.
F5 will be providing food and drink, so come out and join us! We're also trying out a new location!
Meetings of the Kansas City chapter of the Open Web Application Security Project are held at 6:00pm on the fourth MONDAY of each month, usually at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center at 4801 Rockhill Rd, Kansas City, MO. Attendance is open to everyone - membership is not required (though we invite you to join the global OWASP organization and list our chapter as your home chapter)! RSVPs are not required - we don't track membership - but it's definitely helpful for planning!
