San Antonio OWASP Chapter: March 2007 Meeting
Topic: Web Application Remediation
Presenter: Dan Cornell
Date: March 28th, 11:30am - 1:00pm
San Antonio Technology Center (Web Room)
3463 Magic Drive
San Antonio, TX 78229

What do you do when the dust settles after a web application assessment
or penetration test? You know you have applications with vulnerabilities
and you know your organization is exposed to risks. How do you go about
addressing these risks while still making progress on an already
aggressive development schedule? What issues need to be fixed and which
can be ignored until later.

This presentation will discuss strategies for organizations remediating
vulnerable web applications. It focuses on practical concerns for
planning and executing a successful remediation effort.
* Classifying risks and ranking the severity of web application
vulnerabilities using tools such as STRIDE and DREAD
* Making challenging tradeoff decisions about which vulnerabilities to
address and which risks to live with
* Planning and executing remediation tasks and integrating these with
existing project plans and timelines
* Integrating lessons learned from the assessment and remediation back
into your organization's SDLC
