AppSec USA 2011: Training, Marlinspike & Winkler & Curphey, CFP, Community

The OWASP AppSec USA 2011 team has exciting updates for the September 20-23, 2011 event commemorating OWASP's tenth anniversary in the invigorating city of Minneapolis, Minnesota!

TRAINING
Ready to learn the art of SQL injection? Got it. Securing iOS or Android apps? You're covered. Taking OWASP WTE (OWASP Live CD) to the next level? Learn from its maintainer! Hardening your Web 2.0, .NET, and PHP code? Be instructed by masters of the craft Dave Wichers and Robert H'obbes' Zakon, and respected infosec authors Shreeraj Shah (author of "Hacking Web Services") and Erez Metula (author of "Managed Code Rootkits"). And if you want to set up the next generation of application layer defenses, build your intrusion detection and protection platform with Colin Watson.

5K/10K FOR CHARITY

WOMEN IN APPSEC
Enable more women to enter the application security field. We're off to a great start with the Wells Fargo Foundation's generous seed funding of $5,000 for grants to women interested in attending OWASP AppSec USA 2011 to launch their career in this growing field. OWASP transformed the way information security works once already, and it's time again to propel positive progress.
