Meeting Schedule: Thursday, June 21st, 2012. From 9:00 to 10:00.
OWASP Guadalajara was invited by Software Guru magazine to participate in one of the most important events for developers in Mexico "Software Guru Conference and Expo 2012". We participated by presenting the topic "OWASP Top 10 Web Application Vulnerabilities". It was a great opportunity to meet with developers and professionals from the IT industry in Mexico but most important, to continue spreading the OWASP word and objective among developers, making them aware about the main risks and vulnerabilities that can be found on web applications as well as the main countermeasures that can prevent those vulnerabilities of being presented on their Web Apps.
We also had the opportunity to talk about the ESAPI and AppSensor OWASP projects and the benefits to implement them; moreover, we discussed about the various OWASP cheat sheets and OWASP Development guides. The audience was very interested and the time was not enough to continue talking about these topics. At the end, they were satissfied with the information provided and the links where they can find all resources needed to build secure applications. The raing of our speech was rated with 4.25/5; being 5 the highest grade!
We are looking forward to continue working with Software Guru!
