Click here to register

The Colorado OWASP chapters are proud to present the 5th annual SnowFROC. Join 300 other developers, business owners, and security professionals for a day-and-a-half of presentations, training, and Birds-of-a-Feather (BoaF) sessions. The SnowFROC 2013 keynote speaker is Neal Ziring, Technical Director of InfoProtection at NSA.

The conference will occur on Thursday, March 28th at the Denver Marriott City Center and will feature four primary tracks:

  • High-Level Technical
  • Deep-Dive / Hands-on Technical
  • Management
  • Legal

Running in parallel to the conference proceedings will be a capture the flag (CTF) hacking competition developed exclusively for SnowFROC by Boulder OWASP chapter members. The day will conclude with a moderated panel discussion featuring top industry leaders.

On Friday, March 29, Aaron Weaver will teach a course in secure coding. This training is free to SnowFROC attendees!

Friday will also offer BoaF sessions. Join like-minded industry leaders and discuss pressing issues facing the industry and you. BoaF sessions are self-lead and may address and issue you would like. Pitch your idea and get the ball rolling!

Finally, Friday will feature a postmortem of the CTF tournament. In addition to discussing solutions, techniques, and tools, we will encourage participants to attack the previously out-of-bounds CTF framework. Itching to break into the scoreboard and rack up the points? The gloves come off Friday morning.

CPE and CLE credits

Much of the SnowFROC content is eligible for continuing professional education (CPE) or continuing legal education (CLE) credits. Please check with your institution regarding specific requirements.

For example, a CISA who attends an eight-hour presentation (480 minutes) with 90 minutes of breaks will earn seven (7) continuing professional education hours.

Activities that qualify for CPE must be directly applicable to the management, design or assessment of an enterprise's information security as per the CISM job practice"
