Presenting OWASP Top 10 Tools & Tactics at ISSA International

The ISSA International Conference is coming up this week in Baltimore; I'll be presenting OWASP Top 10 Tools and Tactics based on work for the InfoSecInstitute article of the same name.
If you're in Baltimore and planning to attend, stop by Friday, October 21 at 2:20pm in Room 304.
I'll be discussing and demonstrating tools such as Burp Suite, Tamper Data, ZAP, Samurai WTF, Watobo, Watcher, Nikto, and others as well as tactics for their use as part of SDL/SDLC best practices.

If you’ve spent any time defending web applications as a security analyst, or perhaps as a developer seeking to adhere to SDLC practices, you have likely utilized or referenced the OWASP Top 10. Intended first as an awareness mechanism, the Top 10 covers the most critical web application security flaws via consensus reached by a global consortium of application security experts. The OWASP Top 10 promotes managing risk in addition to awareness training, application testing, and remediation. To manage such risk, application security practitioners and developers need an appropriate tool kit. This presentation will explore tooling, tactics, analysis, and mitigation.

Hope to see you there.

Cheers.
