Hello everyone!

*OWASP Austin Chapter Meeting for July*

When: Tuesday, July 25th @ 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

Where: National Instruments, 11500 N. Mopac.Building C

Title: *Frontline Web App Security*

According to the Verizon DBIR (Data Breach Investigation Report) for 2016,
web application attacks are the #1 source of data breaches. Web
applications account for only 8 percent of overall reported incidents.
However, attacks on web applications accounted for over 40 percent of
incidents resulting in a data breach, and were the single-biggest source of
data loss.

With those threats in mind, it has never been more important to ensure that
companies have visibility into what is happening with their web apps.  The
most effective way to address application flaws and preemptively block
unknown attacks is to have a close relationship with your web application

Static, signature based blocking is not enough to address never before seen
attacks.  In this talk, we will walk through scenarios that we have
observed, talk about coding practices that enable your web app to be
secured, and describe the steps that are taken to defend against critical
web applications attacks.

*Speakers: *Paul Scott and Jason Payne

Paul Scott is an OWASP Houston chapter leader and the Manager of Alert
Logic’s Web Application Security Team.
