OWASP Montreal - January 28th - Latest trends in Mobile Security

MAIN PRESENTER: Francois Proulx

ABSTRACT: Last AppSecUSA 2013 had a great line up of talks, especially
regarding mobile applications. This session will be covering all the
hottest presentations about mobile security by doing an overview from
what see saw at AppSecUSA, all with some slides and snippets of
presentations that was recorded at the event. Discussion will be
encouraged within the audience as this will be more a dynamic event than
a regular talk.

worked on dozens of iOS applications since the very beginning of the

OWASP ISO IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project

OWASP ISO/IEC 27034 Application Security Controls Project is an effort
to do the conversion of OWASP related documentations and best practices,
such as the OWASP Top 10, in Application Security Controls (ASCs) as
defined in ISO/IEC 27034. This will enable 27034 stakeholders to use
formal structure of OWASP content.

Working sessions are in preparation and will be held in English in
Montreal and accessible worldwide with Hangouts!
