Web, SaaS, Mobile Application Adoption Protecting sensitive data WAM for the Public Cloud Identity Sprawl

We will take an in depth look at what is driving enterprises to consider and migrate to Web, SaaS and Mobile applications. We then investigate Web Access Management where it started and why we need a new approach to meet the new needs. But we still need to consider the traditional tenants of Authentication, Authorization and Audit. These are still vitally important - even more so. Finally we will explore how identities are increasingly growing with this new paradigm and how we can control those identities.

Abstract:

The Top 10 Mobile Application Risks, or “Mobile App Top 10” for short, is a list of the most prevalent risks to look for in the mobile applications you are developing and consuming.

Many of the risks in mobile devices are similar to those of traditional spyware, Trojan software, and insecurely designed apps. However, mobile devices are not just small computers. Mobile devices are designed around personal and communication functionality which makes the top mobile applications risks different from the top traditional computing risks.

The Mobile App Top 10 can be used to determine the coverage of a security solution which can protect against these risks. A mobile app security solution can declare its coverage of the Mobile App Top 10 so customers can understand what risks the solution mitigates. Mobile app security solutions can be used in the development of an app, as part of an app store vetting process, for acceptance testing of an app, or for security software running on a mobile device.

Speaker Bio:

Clint Pollock is a Senior Solutions Architect at Veracode. Since 1997, he has also created security solutions for large-scale enterprise environments on behalf of CREDANT Technologies and Netegrity. In his current role, Clint helps globally distributed organizations evaluate, track, and mitigate their application security risk.

Abstract:

This presentation outlines the primary risk concerns for application security, audit, and compliance then expands on those topics to create a "Checklist for Application Security, Systems, Internetworking, and Engineering". The presentation begins with understanding the types of risks involved, the current pitfalls (and in some cases pratfalls) companies struggle to endure, and what we can do to fix them. The presenter outlines the basic foundation on how to build a program for success, debunking the myth that you can’t have operational stability, security, and compliance while reducing operating costs, and how using this approach helps to achieve this goal.

Applications are currently a major attack vector as well as being difficult to keep stable, secure, and compliant. But securing only the applications, or just the infrastructure can lead to compromise; and audit, compliance, and legal problems. By applying the author's philosophy and checklists to your organization, staff from support, engineering, application development, up to CISOs can more effectively work together to improve security and meet Executive Management’s tolerance for business risk while achieving business objectives. This presentation highlights the issues, demonstrates how the entire enterprise works together, and finally outlines a basic checklist and a methodology for CISOs, Developers, Administrators, and Engineers alike to ensure business and technology risk management work in concert with all technology areas, including audit and compliance.The method draws its strengths from proven frameworks such as OWASP, SAMM, Visible Ops, FFIEC, CoBIT, and ITIL.

Speaker Bio:

Mr. Perfetti has been working in information security for fifteen years. He has been involved in IT Security for the financial services industry for ten years where he has worked as an Information Security Officer as well as having been responsible for vulnerability and threat management, and security engineering.

He has a broad range of experience in both operations and security. Mr. Perfetti provided governance and guidance over risk and compliance issues for the Americas region of ABN AMRO as the Local Information Security Officer for New York. His responsibilities were primarily to manage the risk for infrastructure related technology and operations.

He was formerly the VP of the NY/NJ Metro Chapter of OWASP and is currently a board member of the local chapter. He has served on the IT Security Advisory Board for the Technology Manager’s Forum. Mr. Perfetti’s accomplishments have been discussed in two books on achieving high performing, stable, and secure infrastructure.

Abstract:

One of the pain points of application penetration testing is keeping all your tools up to date and installed on whatever computer you happen to have with you. After several successful releases of the OWASP Live CD, I had a bit of a think and decided that there was a better way. After a bunch of re-tooling (the fancy word is refactoring), OWASP WTE is ready for prime time. OWASP Web Testing Environment is a project to package application testing tools and make them available in a variety of ways - you pick what works for you: Live CD, Virtual Machine, ala carte installations on your existing Ubuntu system, or maybe even attack tools in the cloud. The choice is yours with WTE.

In this talk I will cover where OWASP WTE is currently, what features are available and what the future holds. The overall project goal is to make testing tools as widely available and easily usable as possible.

Speaker Bio:

Matt is currently on the board of the OWASP Foundation and highly involved in many OWASP projects and committees. Matt is the project leader of the OWASP WTE (Web Testing Environment) which is the source of theOWASP Live CD Project and Virtual Machines pre-configured with tools and documentation for testing web applications.

Matt has been involved in the Information Technology industry for more than 10 years. Matt is currently serving as the VP of services at Praetorian, leveraging his experience in application security and consulting. Prior to joining Praetorian, Matt was a Security Consultant at Trustwave's Spider Labs. Matt's focus has been in application security including testing, code reviews, design reviews and training. His background in web application development and system administration helped bring a holistic focus to Secure SDLC efforts he's driven. He has taught both graduate level university courses and for large financial institutions. Matt has presented and provided training a various industry events including DHS Software Assurance Workshop, AppSec EU, AppSec US, AppSec Academia, and AppSec Brazil.

Industry designations include the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH). Matt Tesauro has a B.S. in Economics and a M.S in Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University.
