NC OWASP - Pete Herzon from ISECOM
On October 14th from 6:30-8:30PM, Pete Herzog from ISECOM will be presenting at the local OWASP chapter meeting on web application security.
Pete is the founder of ISECOM, a non-profit organization that has created the OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual), and will be openly discussing how to apply the science behind the OSSTMM in performing audits/assessments against web applications. OSSTMM is a focus on Operational Security, stressing the importance of "Trust Metrics" over traditional "Risk Metrics"...this will be very interesting and we're extremely fortunate to have Pete in town for this event.

Pete Herzog noticed that his three kids rarely drove the expensive battery-powered toy car he had bought them for Christmas because it was always out of juice.
One afternoon he spotted a broken solar-powered garden lamp rolling around and took off its panels. He hooked them to the toy-car battery, using parts he melted off the lamp's circuit board. Now the car, left to bake in the sun all day, is always ready for joyrides. Herzog is director of the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies, a nonprofit dedicated to researching how security works in all aspects of our lives. His job requires him to think like a top-notch computer hacker. So it's not surprising that he can solve nagging problems in his own backyard. But he doesn't think of himself as a creative person!
