If any of you are able to make it to this year AppSec conference, here's 
the info ...

-- Ralf Durkee

OWASP and WASC have agreed to join forces this year to put together an 
incredible AppSec 2007 Conference for the application security 
community. A huge concentration of industry leading experts will be in 
attendance presenting high quality web application security content. 
AppSec 2007 offers a unique opportunity for security professionals, 
software developers, and IT managers to get up to speed on the latest 
and greatest attack techniques, defense strategies, and industry trends 
in an atmosphere of peers. The conference format and venue is also 
perfect for networking and sharing experiences with others that are down 
in the trenches.

There are many new firsts to this conference that I wanted to mention:

 

1)      This is the first joint OWASP and WASC AppSec Conference

2)      This is the first conference being hosted at a company facility. 
eBay has generously offered OWASP the use of their San Jose conference 
facility for this event. (Thank you eBay)

3)      A 3^rd track has been added on Day 1 that focuses exclusively on 
Web Services Security, which is an important area for OWASP to get 
involved with (and it is)
