TOPIC: Financial Real-Time Threats: Impacting Trading Floor Operations

This presentation will aim to illustrate how individual application or network layer threats, if combined correctly, can impact the workload between the “pit” and departments such as settlements, processing and accounting. Stemming from the lowest level of internal threat, systems on, or behind, trading floor operations can be manipulated in ways that might even go unnoticed. Such impact is possible due to the shear complexity of the enterprise applications used, as well as the ways in which they are inter-related.

TOPIC: JBroFuzz: Effective Fuzzing for Network and Web Applications

JBroFuzz is a stateless network protocol fuzzer that emerged from the needs of penetration testing. This presentation will aim to illustrate efficient ways of fuzzing in order to minimize the amount of time spent in discovering application and network protocol vulnerabilities.

SPEAKER: Dr. Yiannis Pavlosoglou is a Security Project Manager at Information Risk Management


TOPIC: Stock fluctuation from an unrecognized influence.

SPEAKER: Justine Bone-Aitel - Immunity Security


TOPIC: Hackers...BotNets oh My! Obtain a briefing on the current BotNet investigations etc.



TOPIC: Why today's vulnerability assessments are failing and a case for industry standardization

As organizations mature their information security capabilities they start to extend their requirements to their partners and providers. Providing for the identification and management of information security issues are becoming part of contractual language. Vulnerability Assessment / ethical reports today are used today as one measurable data point to build a confidence in the status of other parties’ web applications and is generally an accepted set in due diligence. The challenge today is these Vulnerability Assessments are inconsistent in scope & rigor, and reported in a form that makes them incomparable between institutions. It is frequently impossible to understand what test design was used (black box/white box), what set of conditions were tested (OWASP top ten only, CVE, items found by common scanning tools, manually exercised conditions, etc) and how issues were rated for severity (CVSS, vendor provided, customer provided, etc). A similar problem existed with information security assessments of operational and physical security at outsourced service providers used by financial institutions and was address by developing an “agreed upon procedures” approach to outline common things needed by institutions so that assessments could be done once by a neutral party and then reused. This presentation, while not offering the complete answer for application security testing, will attempt to outline the components needed for such a solution.
