Special OWASP-CSA Joint Meeting March 11,2015 7pm at Symantec Offices in Culver City

  Speaker: Jerry Hoff, VP of the Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security
  Topic: Web Attacks at Scale in 2015 (Alternative Title: Web Security Bootcamp) 

Abstract: This talk is an attacker-centric presentation demonstrating how modern pen-testing tools such as OWASP Zap, Browser Exploitation Framework (BeEF) and sqlmap can be used to automate web attacks at scale. Reenactments of some of the most publicized attacks in recent history will be conducted to ensure participants understand and absorb how these attacks are taking place. Full exploits using these tools and more will be demonstrated, and a discussion of solutions will follow.

Prior to WhiteHat Security, Jerry co-founded Infrared Security, a specialist in application security and next-generation static analysis technologies.

  Speaker: Jeff Williams is the founder and CTO of Contrast Security
  Topic: Why Your AppSec Experts Are Killing You

Abstract: Software development has been transformed by practices like Continuous Integration and Continuous Integration, while application security has remained trapped in expert-based waterfall mode. In this talk, Jeff will show you how you can evolve into a “Continuous Application Security” organization that generates assurance automatically across an entire application security portfolio. Jeff will show you how to bootstrap the “sensor-model-dashboard” feedback loop that makes real time, continuous application security possible. He will demonstrate the approach with a new *free* tool called Contrast for Eclipse that brings the power of instrumentation-based application security testing directly into the popular IDE. Check out “Application Security at DevOps Speed and Portfolio Scale” for some background.

Speaker bio: Jeff Williams is the founder and CTO of Contrast Security, bringing the power of instrumentation and real time analytics to secure your application portfolio. Previously, Jeff was a founder and CEO of Aspect Security. He also served as Global Chairman of the OWASP Foundation where he created many open-source standards, tools, libraries, and guidelines – including the OWASP Top Ten, WebGoat, ESAPI, XSS CheatSheet, ASVS and more. Jeff welcomes hearing from you and may be reached directly at jeff.williams@contrastsecurity.com.
