  '''Topic:  Stop Chasing Vulnerabilities – Getting Started with Continuous Application Security'''
 +
For too long, application security has been “experts-only” and practiced one-app-at-a-time. But modern software development, both technology and process, is mostly incompatible with this old approach and legacy appsec tools.  Software development has been transformed by practices like Continuous Integration and Continuous Integration, and the time has come to bring these efficiencies to security.  In this talk, Jeff will show you how you can transition to a “Continuous Application Security” approach that generates assurance automatically across an entire application security portfolio. Jeff will demonstrate how both open-source and commercial tools (including OWASP ZAP, Mozilla’s Minion, Gauntlt, and others) can be integrated to provide a comprehensive real time application security dashboard.  With this approach, we can leverage the power of big data analytics to gain unprecedented insight into enterprise application security and finally focus on enterprise application security strategy rather than simply chasing the next XSS.

*''' Abstract: Secure Password Storage Practices '''
+
<br>
(or Why "Hashing + Salting != Secure Passwords")
+
  
Many web applications require passwords that are hard for users to remember, cumbersome to type, yet easy for hackers to crack. With affordable, lightning-fast hardware aiding hackers, we have recently seen a number of large organizations in the news for user-password security failures. Join us as we discuss common attacks on password lists/tables as well as some password storage practices that can make any cracking attempts not worth the attackers’ time.

For too long, application security has been “experts-only” and practiced one-app-at-a-time. But modern software development, both technology and process, is mostly incompatible with this old approach and legacy appsec tools. Software development has been transformed by practices like Continuous Integration and Continuous Integration, and the time has come to bring these efficiencies to security. In this talk, Jeff will show you how you can transition to a “Continuous Application Security” approach that generates assurance automatically across an entire application security portfolio.

With this approach, we can leverage the power of big data analytics to gain unprecedented insight into enterprise application security and finally focus on enterprise application security strategy rather than simply chasing the next XSS.
