My name is Florian Brunner and I work as a security consultant in my own company. Before the foundation of my own company back in 2011, I was working as a software engineer for an international MES vendor. I have a bachelors degree in Secure Information Systems at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Hagenberg and I will graduate my master's degree in the summer of 2013. Alongside my studies at university I was chairman of Hagenberger Kreis zur Förderung der digitalen Sicherheit, a students association founded back in 2002 with the aim of enhancing the security awareness within Austria. The yearly ICT security conference "Security Forum" is organized by this association. The main activities within my own company focus on penetration testing, social engineering and secure software development. Since 2008 I was part of the CTF team h4ck!nb3rg.
Most of my work in penetration testing and security consulting is based on OWASP material and since the Austrian chapter was inactive, I would like to use my experience in managing associations and web application security to relaunch the Austrian chapter.
