Past Events:

Joe Kuemerle - Tuesday, December 18th from Noon – 2 p.m.

Presentation: Reverse Engineering .NET and Java

Abstract: Learn the various techniques bad guys can use to extract information from your .NET or Java applications or at least how you can recover the source code that your predecessor deleted before he quit. Enjoy a demo filled session on how easy it is to extract information from virtually any .NET or Java application.

He is currently a Lead Developer at BookingBuilder Technologies and is active in the technical community as well as a speaker at local, regional and national events.

Kevin Johnson - Tuesday, March 22nd Noon – 2pm Presentation:“Ninja Developers: Application Security Testing and Your SDLC.”

Talk Abstract: The security of enterprise software is one of the key risks organizations can start to control today. As new applications are developed and legacy software is updated, incorporating a measure of security testing can be one of the most critical ways to positively impact an organizations security posture. To properly validate the security of enterprise applications a 3rd party penetration test or assessment may be enlisted - but the cost of testing each application quickly makes this impractical. This situation presents a challenging problem.

Kevin Johnson will explain how your development staff can incorporate techniques distilled from years of experience into your organization's development and release methodology. Whether you're using Agile, RUP or Google programming, these tips and tricks will enable your developers to produce higher quality, more secure code right from the start. Kevin will reveal some of the secrets of the masters learned from experience and industry leadership over the past decade - and show you how you can insert security into your software development lifecycle with minimal disruption and maximum effectiveness.

Speaker Bio: Kevin Johnson is a security consultant and founder of Secure Ideas. Kevin came to security from a development and system administration background. He has many years of experience performing security services for fortune 100 companies, and in his spare time he contributes to a large number of open source security projects. Kevin's involvement in open-source projects is spread across a number of projects and efforts. Kevin is a certified instructor for SANS and the author of Security 542: Web Application Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking.
