    Portland OWASP Chapter Meeting: So You Want to Teach Security? Bully for You!

    Autodesk Inc

    This talk focuses on building a security curriculum and teaching it, whether individually, at the workplace or in academia. Start with the following question: Am I the right person to do it? A novice can be downright dangerous, while an expert who can't teach as useful as a waterproof teabag. Security education is the first line of defense, but who trains the trainers? Are students getting their money's worth? What differentiates your training from others? Join the speaker to share life lessons, funny anecdotes, and useful advice on lecturing, "curriculuming", and critiquing. Learn what it means to containerize a syllabus, deploy labs in a continuous integration-like environment using open source tools and why markdown is a better tool than PowerPoint for creating new content. Consider security textbooks as obsolete, "office hours" mandatory, and the impact of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). There will be a test at the end of the talk.

    Speaker: John L. Whiteman

    John is a product security expert and instructor at Intel in Oregon. He's also a part-time adjunct instructor teaching cybersecurity at the University of Portland. In a past life, John was a shipboard and classroom instructor in the United States Navy, training hundreds of sailors in the dark arts of passive sonar and torpedo countermeasure systems (in case the former didn't pan out). He also did a stint as a news director for a small radio station in Colorado. John has an M.S. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech and a B.A. in Asian Studies from the University of Maryland UC. He holds CISSP, CCSP and CEH security certifications. John blogs and loves to podcast for the OWASP chapter in Portland.

    Apply to PIE: Question and answer session (evening)

    Autodesk Inc

    Thinking about applying to PIE or PIE Shop? Have questions about the program? Curious as to what an accelerator even does? Wondering if the format is right for you? Cool. Let's talk about that. All of that.

    Please join PIE at Autodesk for a question and answer session to get more information on our programs and the benefits for early stage startups.

    Questions about the differences between the two programs causing you to second guess whether you should even show up? Well, let's get that one answered first. Yes. The answer is yes. If you're a founder of an early stage startup, you should show up.

    And in terms of the differences? PIE is an accelerator designed to support startups building digital products. PIE Shop is an incubator/accelerator designed to support startups manufacturing physical products.

    We're looking forward to seeing you.

    Already ready to apply? Here's a cheat sheet that will help you prepare your application: https://bit.ly/PIE2019cheatsheet
