'''Topic''': Demonstration of Common Web Vulnerabilities using WebGoat.NET'''<br>
 +
Developers cannot defend against unknown threats.  Understanding vulnerabilities and security controls is an absolute necessity – not only for developers, but for Architects, QA and anyone else involved in the creation of software. This talk starts by making a strong argument for developer education, and how it fits into any organization’s SDLC. From there, we discuss other OWASP resources and projects dedicated to developer education, and an in-depth discussion of OWASP WebGoat.NET – an ASP.NET specific re-design of OWASP which meets the needs and addresses the challenges of modern application security training programs.

*''' Topic: Cloud Computing – Security and Interoperability Perspectives'''
+
== '''Sponsor: Checkmarx and Trend Micro'''==
  
Many organizations are evaluating and migrating toward cloud computing solutions. In 2013, some the key challenges pertain to security and interoperability.  Open cloud standards can help manage risks, while fostering efficient solution delivery.

Checkmarx provides the best way for organizations to introduce security into their Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) which systematically eliminates software risk.
  
Steven Woodward shares updates from numerous international cloud standards related organizations. In Canada, he leads several of the cloud computing initiatives in both the private and public sectors.  This includes being one of the founding board members of the Cloud Security Alliance Canadian Chapter.
+
The product enables developers and auditors to easily scan un-compiled / un-built code in all major coding languages and identify its security vulnerabilities.
  
Steven describes key cloud ecosystems models; highlighting where security considerations fit, along with different perspectives on interoperability.  Several real-life scenarios will be used, highlighting cloud concepts, security, interoperability and the impacts these can have on commitments (functionality, costs, time-to-value and quality).   Service Agreements and Service Level Agreements will also be addressed to identify where you may find security and interoperability considerations specified in the contracts.
+
Static Code Analysis (SCA) delivers security and the requirement of incorporating security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC). It is the only proven method to cover the entire code base and identify all the vulnerable areas in the software. In static code analysis the entire code base is abstracted and all code properties and code data-flows are exposed.
  
The presentation is designed to be interactive and will include some group activities to generate discussions and identify practical solutions.
+
With Checkmarx's CxSuite, auditors and developers have immediate access to the code analysis results and remediation advice. We provide user friendly, high productivity, flexible and accurate risk intelligence platform that ensures your application remains hacker-proof.
  
Attendees of the presentation will leave with a better understanding of cloud security and interoperability considerations, plus be aware of reference material and models that help address those challenges.
