OWASP Update

Retrospective of 2013 activities as the BeNeLux-Day 2013 at the RAI Amsterdam and looking forward to OWASP Conferences and event 2014.

Security as part of Quality Assurance

How can you be sure your application is 'secure'? Or 'secure enough'? The answer off course, is Security Testing. But which kind of testing? How much? When? By whom? How? And most important to the customer / manager: how much is it going to cost. In this talk I'll be presenting the 'Application Security Verification Standard 2013' (ASVS) by the OWASP Foundation. A comprehensive framework for determining a security 'level' and steps to take to 'verify' this level. With this tool you'll be able to answer all the questions above. I'll also talk briefly on how it integrates with a Secure Software Development Lifecycle at Ibuildings .

Don't be a tool's fool

Tools are important to both hackers and security testers, but they are not 'the silver bullit'. You need to understand the limitations of tools in order to get the most efficiency out of them. In this presentation some tips and tricks for well-known tools will be shown to get you started getting the right mind-set in using them.
