Web App Penetration Testing with Burp Suite

Intellectual Point

What is Burp Suite you ask? Burp Suite is a Java-based Web Penetration Testing framework. It has become an industry standard suite of tools used by information security professionals. Burp Suite helps you identify vulnerabilities and verify attack vectors that are affecting web applications. This overview will utilize hands-on training with Burp Suite and OWASP Juice Shop to teach web application penetration testing (WAPT) fundamentals. We will demonstrate how to use Burp Suite to manually and automatically identify and validate common web app security issues, with a focus on covering the OWASP Top 10 application security risks (2017 list). By the end of the meetup, attendees will have a better idea of how to use Burp Suite and the importance of secure coding for web applications.

Is Data Privacy a Fundamental Human Right

University of North America

Is Data Privacy a Fundamental Human Right: In the era of big data, how much privacy can we expect, and how much privacy do we need? In this presentation, Logical Operations’ Technology Education Jedi Jon O’Keefe will explore the history of privacy as he guides us to an understanding of how important privacy is (or isn’t) to the human experience. When placed within the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution, data privacy has never been more hotly debated. Does the need for privacy outweigh the incredible convenience of modern living? How are the big companies keeping your data safe, and what is happening when they don’t? What do regulations like GDPR and CCPA mean for modern businesses? Be sure to note the location. 12750 Fair Lakes Circle · Fairfax, VA (the University of North America has moved!) When you go in the front door go to the elevator on the right behind the front desk and go to floor 1. When you leave the elevator turn left then go straight back. The room number is 1015. ______________________________________________________________________________________ Get more information before this meetup at a Logical Operation Webinar​!

Hands-on Automation Demo - Build a BOT with UIPath

Intellectual Point

Robotic process automation (RPA) is the current big technology trend in many major industries. With RPA, a business uses programmed software to automate everyday tasks, freeing up employees to focus their efforts on higher-level duties. According to KeyBanc Capital Markets, the global RPA market is emerging as a $100 billion opportunity in 10 years while McKinsey expects that the automation of knowledge work could have a potential economic impact between $5.2 and $6.7 trillion dollars by 2025. RPA is the future of enterprise automation and a key pillar of a digital transformation strategy. The art of managing robots is as intricate and challenging as managing people. Please join us at this event where you will be learning some fundamentals of UIPath such as​ RPA Use Cases, RPA Benefits, hands-on demo on how to build attended bots, best practices, and more. This meetup is a hands-on presentation of how to use three main products within the UIPath portfolio to build a bot to automate the manual process such as filling out expense reports, screen scraping and doing reconciliations on a financial statement. UiPath Studio - an advanced tool that enables you to design automation processes in a visual manner, through diagrams. UiPath Robot - executes the processes built in Studio, as a human would. Robots can work unattended (run without human supervision in any environment, be it virtual or not) or as assistants (a human triggers the process). UiPath Orchestrator - a web application that enables you to deploy, schedule, monitor and manage Robots and processes, while business exception handling is available through centralized work queues.
