The meeting will discuss some basic methods of SQL injection vulnerability
identification (both error based and blind), and will go over ways to use
the SQLMap0.9 tool to test your web application. Futhermore, we will discuss
some of the more advanced features of SQLMap that were unavailable in
previous releases.

Presenter Bio: Alexander Heid - is a local security researcher and board
member of Hackmiami and co-chair of South Florida OWASP. Heid is also
employed within the financial industry as a web application vulnerability

Automated Scanning and Differential Reporting

Companies are struggling with scaling source code scanning, there are not
enough security experts to fulfill the current demand.  Developers are being
overwhelmed with the quantity and quality of issues reported from
misconfigured scanning tools.  This session will present an automated source
code scanning deployment methodology that allows organizations to
automatically reduce false positives during scanning and deliver reports
that represent the high confidence security risk of the latest software

What will your audience walk away with?
1) Establishment of security policies is key to reducing false positives
2) Automated scanning is easy to configure and requires limited maintenance
3) Differential reporting reduces developer overload by highlighting the
risk of recent  change
