MOVIE SNEAK PREVIEW: REBOOT
We are very excited to announce a special sneak preview of the new film “Reboot” at OWASP AppSec USA 2012! Set within a dystopian world that is a collision between technology and humanity, “Reboot” touches upon many of the current social and political concerns that arise from becoming more and more intertwined with the virtual.

In contemporary Los Angeles, a young female hacker (Stat) awakens from unconsciousness to find an iPhone glued to her hand and a mysterious countdown ticking away on the display. Suffering from head trauma, and with little recollection of who she is or what is happening, Stat races against time to figure out what the code means, and what unknown event the pending zero-hour will bring.

Only 300 passes are available for this special screening at AppSec and it has already been added as an OPTIONAL AGENDA ITEM for our attendees. If you’ve already registered for AppSec and would like to attend, simply LOG IN HERE and add it to your agenda. If you have not already registered for AppSec, you should REGISTER TODAY to reserve your pass.
