ISSA-LA July Lunch Meeting

July 19, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 1:30 pm

Location: Taix French Restaurant, 1911 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Topic: Lessons Learned from a Web App Penetration Tester

After more than a decade performing vulnerability assessments and penetration tests on web applications on all kinds of systems, I reached the point where I can step back and look at the big picture.

This presentation is about web application vulnerability trends over the last ten years and how the industry has reacted to them. You will also learn about the most common vulnerabilities found in today’s systems and more importantly, why we still find them in 2017. I will conclude the presentation by identifying effective safeguards against those current vulnerabilities.
