Hi all - quick meeting reminder for today. Look forward to seeing you there.
The presentation definitely looks interesting!

OWASP Philly/ Meeting - 307 Levine Hall*

*When:* Tuesday, August 17th, from 6:30 - 8:00 PM
*Where:* University of Pennsylvania, 307 Levine Hall, Philadelphia

*Mobile App Security Techniques*

Look left, look right, look in your pocket, you probably glanced over a
cellular phone. These devices are getting more and more pervasive in today's
society. More importantly they are getting very powerful. This new market of
software users have been the catalyst of the "app" boom. Everyone is jumping
on board and developing mobile applications. This influx of mobile
application development means there are a large number of mobile
applications that get rushed to the market before they can be properly
reviewed from a security standpoint. So guess what, more bugs for the
taking!

In this talk we will lay out a few basic techniques that we use when we
perform mobile application assessments, highlight possible pit falls that
one should be aware and hopefully give those up and coming mobile
application penetration testers a leg up on the competition.

*Raj Umadas* is a Consultant with the Intrepidus Group. Mr. Umadas graduated
Summa Cum-Laude from The Polytechnic Institute of NYU with a BS in Computer
Engineering. At NYU:Poly, Mr. Umadas pursued a highly expansive computer
security curriculum. He is just as comfortable sniffing out a memory
corruption bug as he is assessing the risk management decisions of large
projects.

Coupled with Mr. Umadas' fresh academic outlook on security, he obtained a
no-nonsense business sense of security while working in an Information Risk
Management arm of a large investment bank. Corporate governance, segregation
of duties, and SOX compliance were all daily concerns for Mr. Umadas.

Mr. Umadas is eager to establish his own niche in the security world where
he will be the catalyst of some very major innovation. With his strong
academics, proven real world experience, and never-say-no attitude; it is
only a matter of time.
