Topic: Aviator Secure Browser Presentation and Demo
With every website you visit, you’re vulnerable to malicious hackers out to steal your surfing history, passwords, email access, bank account numbers, medical info, and more. And the “big browsers” don’t do enough to stop it.
WhiteHat Aviator is touted as the Web’s most secure and private browser. We'll get more information and see a demo.

Topic: Securing Complex Forms Speaker: Jim Manico
The heart of how users interact with a web application is the HTML form submission. A great deal of very sensitive data flows over HTML forms. Securing web form submissions is critical for the construction of a secure web application. Multi-form workflows make securing form submissions even more complicated! This presentation will take you on a journey as untrusted data flows from a form submission into the many layers of a secure web application.
• Review some of the basic threats against web forms • Learn some of the most important defense categories for building secure web forms • Discuss some of the more complex aspects to form construction, such as workflow
Topic: Securing the SDLC in the real world Speaker: Jim Manico
The earlier you address security in the engineering of software, the less expensive it will be for your organization. There are many who will tell you that you need to change all of your current processes around building software so it is more secure. Many of those forces are consultants charging high rates to help you deeply modify what you are doing today. This talk will will take the opposite approach. How can you add a few reasonable and mostly lightweight processes to how you build software today to make it more secure? Software development is like driving a boat. You need to look ahead make small changes to steer effectively.
Jim Manico is an author and educator of developer security awareness trainings. He is also a frequent speaker on secure software practices and is a member of the JavaOne "rockstar hall of fame". He has a 17 year history building software as a developer and architect. Jim is also one of the members of the Global Board of Directors for the OWASP foundation where he helps drive the strategic vision for the organization. He manages and participates in several OWASP projects, including the OWASP cheat sheet series and several secure coding projects. Jim is currently working on a book with McGraw-Hill and Oracle-Press on Java Security. For more information, see http://www.linkedin.com/in/jmanico.
