'''Date:''' Jan 25<br>

We welcome speakers of all level! You don't have to be a pro to talk at one of our events, but we do ask that you talk be related to an application security domain and you provide value to attendees. To be a speaker, simply review the [[Speaker_Agreement |speaker agreement]] and then contact the our [mailto:farshad.[email protected].org chapter lead] with details of what OWASP project, independent research or related application security topic you would like to present on.
'''Speaker:''' Miles (San-Tsai) Sun<br>
 
'''Abstract:''' Using a small number of generic payloads to discover high-risk web vulnerabilities (e.g., SQL injection, Remote Code Execution) is highly desirable during a penetration test.  In this talk, I will present and demonstrate a lightweight vulnerability detection approach complimenting to traditional automatic scanners. Using an expression probing technique, this approach can systematically probe whether user-controlled input is treated as code by the server-side program logic, as well as the situational context of the injected payload, and its underlying language. Compared to automatic vulnerability scanners, this approach imposes tiny network footprint (e.g., quick, negligible system impact, avoid IP blocking), is agnostic to application platform/language, and friendly to Web Application Firewall/Intrusion Detection and Prevention System. This lightweight detection technique could address or reduce many common challenges faced by penetration testers.

'''Speaker:''' Roger Trevisan<br>
 
'''Abstract:''' If you are somewhat involved with the application security world, you probably have heard about some of the following acronyms when talking about security testing: MPT, SCA,  SSA, RASP, IAST, DAST and SAST. With all the new developments and technologies related to cybersecurity it may be challenging to understand what solutions are available and the advantages each of the alternative offers and how do they fit your software development lifecycle. This session will give you an overview on the most prevalent security testing technologies and highlight where they fit in the SDLC.<br>
 
'''Speaker bio:''' Roger Trevisan is a CISSP certified security professional with 12+ years of experience with web application security, secure coding, secure development lifecycle, penetration testing, risk assessment, vulnerability management, network security and information systems administration. As a skilled penetration tester and application security professional, Roger has helped high-profile companies in industries such as financial, healthcare and telecommunication to identify and address a large number of critical security vulnerabilities.<br>
 
  
==Managing an Application Security Testing and Vulnerability Management Program in a CI/CD Environment==
 
'''Date:''' May 24<br>
 
'''Speaker:''' Karim Lalji<br>
 
'''Abstract:''' Modern software environments have adopted new methodologies to developing products including continuous integration and continuous delivery, more commonly referred to CI/CD. Application security testing and vulnerability management is an important aspect in software environments; unfortunately this practice is often lacking in both effectiveness and requisite knowledge when dealt with from an applications perspective as opposed to traditional IT infrastructures. The challenges are further extended in CI/CD environments where critical code is merging into production at regular intervals without proper security coverage.<br>
 
This talk will aim to provide individuals with a working understanding of application security testing (AST) as well as vulnerability management in a modern software enterprise employing DevOps practices, and more specifically a CI/CD pipeline. The talk will discuss security testing at different stages of the S-SDLC from source code analysis to penetration testing and how to effectively manage vulnerabilities. The discussion is applicable to anyone with an interest in security or software in general but is of particular relevance to managers and architects interested in building an effective application security program.
 
  
'''Speaker Bio:''' Karim has a background in application security particularly in the banking/finance industries and currently works in a senior offensive security consulting role conducting penetration testing and threat/vulnerability assessments for a variety of clients. Karim was a software engineer in his past life and securing applications has been a strong focus for a good portion of his career.
