<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;Topic: &lt;/b&gt; Web Application Security in the Airline Industry: Stealing the Airlines’ Online Data
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;In this session, attendees will learn about the types of airline
<br>data that is at risk of being stolen by online data thieves. In
<br>addition, the following topics will be further explored:
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;1. Important attack scenarios and Web-based vulnerabilities
<br>accompanied by examples of how these attacks can be mitigated by
<br>deploying comprehensive defense solutions;
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;2. Protection strategies and tools, such as Web application
<br>scanners and Web application firewalls, which help equalize the gap
<br>between the advanced Web hacker and the security professional; and
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;3. Compliance and Software development life cycle approaches.
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Following the September 11 attacks, the airline industry
<br>recognized its need to ‘webify’ online ticket reservation systems, crew
<br>scheduling, and passenger profiles in order to enhance operational
<br>efficiency. This ultimately served to decrease the airlines’ operating
<br>costs, thereby increasing their operating profits. However, the
<br>following questions remain: At what costs? What are the information
<br>systems and customer data security risks associated with the airline
<br>‘webification’ process?
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Please join in this presentation, which will outline some of
<br>the challenges that members of the airlines industry may face when
<br>attempting to protect their online services. Additionally, attendees
<br>will discover methodologies that airlines may utilize to identify,
<br>assess, and protect against the various risks associated with Web-based
<br>application attacks.
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;Who:&lt;/b&gt; Quincy Jackson
<br>&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Quincy Jackson, a CISSP and Certified Ethical Hacker, has more
