• Open Web App Security Project - Kansas City Chapter Monthly Meeting

    Our March meeting will feature Eric Guillen. Eric is a lead information security engineer, focusing on penetration testing and red teaming, at a local organization with a high quality security group. Eric is also active in the local InfoSec community. Eric will be speaking on Bug Bounties: There's lots of information regarding being a bug bounty researcher, but what about the organizations having their systems reviewed? Eric will provide some helpful information to consider before and after launching a bug bounty program at your organization, and whether or not a bug bounty might be right (or wrong) for your organization.

Our speaker will be Jeremy Meiss with Auth0, speaking on Passwordless Authentication: Passwords. Can we forget them now please?

Stop using passwords. Forget them. Permanently. Jeremy is the Head of Community at Auth0 and former Community Manager at XDA-Developers.

    Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters

    Hi, all! Due to a conflict at the usual meeting location, and having been out of town, we're going to have a social meeting for July. We can chat about some of the interesting stuff I picked up at OSCON last week, ideas for things for upcoming meetings, and have a beer or some coffee! No formal agenda, just a chance to hang out and talk AppSec or whatever else floats your boat. Note the change in location. If you're not familiar with it, Thou Mayest is a coffee shop near 18th and Oak, which also happens to have beer. Our usual location is available next month, so we'll be back there in August. If you get there and can't find us, give me a call or a text at[masked]! I will plan on being there a little early in the hopes of grabbing a decent spot.

    Kauffman Foundation Conference Center

    Meetings of the Kansas City chapter of the Open Web Application Security Project are held at 6:30pm on the fourth Tuesday 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! This month's presenter will be your organizer, Justin Ferguson - I will be re-visiting my talk from BSidesKC: Docker Cloudlove; or How I Learned to Stop Snarking and Embrace the DevSecOps. This will be a high-level talk about why DevOps/DevSecOps is good for the security community, and how AppSec and DevSec are more or less the same thing. Look forward to seeing everyone there!
