This is the Meetup group for Auckland-area events held by the New Zealand chapter of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
In addition to the five (5) Auckland Meetups each year (2nd Tuesdays of March, May, July, September, and November) and Meetups in other cities, the OWASP NZ Chapter hosts Training Day events, university-focused conferences ( https://security.ac.nz ), and collaborates with AppSec New Zealand to host the annual AppSec New Zealand Conference (http://appsec.org.nz/conference/) in Auckland each February.
The Auckland-area OWASP Meetup takes place on the second Tuesdays of March, May, July, September, and November. There are no Meetups in January, as our members enjoy their holidays.
At each meeting, we'll have the following general agenda:
6:00 - 6:25 - Introductions and Administrative Items 6:25 - 7:00- OWASP Top 10 Focus Discussion 7:00 - 7:30 - Networking and Refreshments 7:30 - 8:30 Technical Presentation, followed by Discussion/Q&A 8:30 Adjourn to local pub/eatery, if desired, for further networking
