AppSec Ireland, AppSec DC, and AppSec US updates

OWASP Ireland September 17th 2010
The agenda has been finalized for the OWASP Ireland event. We have the pleasure to announce a number of key figures from industry which should provide some unique insight into the latest trends, threats and methodologies in the world of application security.

John Viega: “Application Security in the Real World” - Considerations for AppSec in non-security companies.
Professor Fred Piper "The changing face of cryptography"
Damian Gordon Phd: “Hackers and Hollywood: The Implications of the Popular Media Representation of Computer Hacking"

We also have some great international and local speakers covering topics from Smart phone application security to SDLC to Penetration testing techniques:
  • Dan Cornell ("Smart Phones with Dumb Apps")
  • Ryan Berg ("Path to a Secure Application")
  • Dr Marian Ventunaec ("Testing the Enterprise E-mail Security - from Software to Cloud-based Services")
  • Fred Donovan and (“Counter Intelligence as Defense……”)
  • Nick Coblentz (“Microsoft's Security Development Lifecycle……”)
.. but to name a few http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_IRELAND_2010#Agenda_and_Presentations_-_September_17



“Secure Application Development: Writing secure code (and testing it)”
AppSec DC: CFP Round Two:
AppSec DC 2010 is the East Coast's premiere Information Security Conference for 2010.

**AppSec DC has added a second round for CFP until August 31st, so there is still time to get submissions in for our CFP!**

Building on the success of last year's AppSec DC 2009, the AppSec DC team is working to further the OWASP conference mission of hosting the best minds in application security in a forum to share innovations and ideas. AppSec DC's unique location and relationship with federal entities in the Washington DC area also allows OWASP and affiliates to continue to reach out to and interact with the federal government in this time of ever-increasing National Security concerns.
This year, in addition to content from industry leaders in application security research, entities within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and other government agencies will be contributing content focusing on Software Assurance and the role that that plays areas of extreme concern in the current climate, such as protecting Critical Infrastructure or Supply Chain Risk Management. If you work in or with the federal government, regardless of branch or service, this is likely a critical concern for some subset of your workplace, and the combination of content at this event will provide an incredible value to your and your employer.

In addition to two days of great speaking content, keynotes and panels, AppSec DC will also provide two days of world class training on applications security from a variety of vendors at a fraction of the cost found at other events. This year featured panels will not only include federal "what works" in application security, but several other areas of interest so that there will be engaging discussion for all types of attendees. The AppSec DC crew is also working a great vendor space and engaging contests, including a hacking competition built specifically for our event.

AppSec DC will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC on November 8-11. Training will be on the 8th and 9th, talks will be on the 10th and 11th. Our partner hotel is the Grand Hyatt again this year, and a discounted rate will be available for attendees who register in Advance.
