This is a monthly meeting of the DC chapter of OWASP (the Open Web Application Security Project), which is designed to be a forum for local web professionals to come together and discuss Web Application Security in an open and collaborative environment.

We will be holding it at the DC office of Deloitte, located at 1001 G ST NW - mere steps away from Metro Center. Directions are at the end of the email.
