SPEAKER: Robert "RSnake" Hansen Robert has worked in the security industry since the mid 1990s and helped pioneer leading banner advertising and click fraud detection solutions. During his tenure at eBay, Mr. Hansen worked on anti-cross site scripting, anti-phishing, anti-virus and web application intrusion detection and countermeasures and was directly responsible for the company's entire authentication architecture. For many years he ran the managed security services product lines for Cable & Wireless. He has spoken at Blackhat, Microsoft's Bluehat, the Rotary, OWASP, the Gartner security round table and at Networld+Interop. He is a member of WASC, OWASP, ISC2, APWG and ISSA.
11:45 - 12:15pm - TOPIC: Dig Your Own Hole: 12 Ways to Go Wrong with Java Security This session explores 12 of the most common security traps in Java. This session doesn’t include a review of 10–year–old guidelines for writing secure applets with JDK 1.1. Instead, it looks at causes of security failures in modern Java–based applications. Approaching security with an “outside in” style, it looks at vulnerabilities from a developer’s perspective, focusing on the source code.

Certification against any of the recognized national variants of ISO 27001 (e.g. the Japanese version) by an accredited certification body is functionally equivalent to certification against ISO 27001 itself. Certification audits are usually led/conducted by ISO 27001 Lead Auditors.
