The OWASP Leeds Chapter[1] is meeting in Manchester on Wednesday. Anyone
interested is welcome, not just OWASP members, but registration is
required as KPMG need to know numbers.

OWASP[2] is the Open Web Application Security Project, which aims to
promote web application security. The OWASP site is full of resources
for developing secure software, attack types, their prevention, and
testing for them. The OWASP Top 10 project[3] picks out the most
prevalent types of web application security flaws. The OWASP Development
Guide[4] provides information for developers. There are also testing and
code review guides, and software to help test for, detect, and protect
against security flaws.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a
simple system that works.—John Gall
