do… Web Application Development and Security

CapSec January 2008

After work today I walked to The Brickskeller and enjoyed a couple beers with a few of the CapSec group including Doug Wilson.

One thing we discussed was that with tech groups formed around common interests, like web development, linux, or security, it’s very easy for people to stick with what and who they know. But in security, work roles tend to be multidisciplinary. Security often is one of several hats to wear or is built upon another specialty such as networking or development. Because of this many security professionals have the perspective and the opportunity to cross-pollinate by participating in other groups where security isn’t the primary focus but is still relevant.

I think, the more people who act on that thought, the better for the community.
