 <p>Thumbs up: OWASP: The Open Web Application
Security Project has been pushing aggressively to do something about
the sloppy state of app security. One key goal is to get app writers to
make security a central part of the development process. CSO magazine
witnessed one such effort last month -- the AppSec D.C. conference in
Washington, where attendees were treated to a wealth of workshops,
presentations and fresh data on the latest security threats. Awareness
is key in this fight, and OWASP remains a leader in this regard.</p>Link to article: <br><br><a href="http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9141964/Security_Wisdom_Watch_Dropping_Names">http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9141964/Security_Wisdom_Watch_Dropping_Names</a><br clear="all">
