Back to the Future - Phishing and Malware by Brendan O’Conner, Saleforce.com 
Abstract: The more things change, the more they stay the same.
We'll take a trip back in time to look at the phishing and anti-malware
solutions of the past. Why did they fail? With companies investing
hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in these solutions, what does
the future of this space look like and what tricks can you apply to
stay one step ahead?

Testing Methodologies:  White-box, Gray-Box, Black-box or Something Else by Kirk Greene, Accuvant 
Abstract: In this presentation we will discuss the different
testing methodologies used when assessing the security of both binary
applications as well as web-based applications. We will focus on the
differences and advantages as they relate to black-box testing,
white-box testing, gray-box testing, reverse engineering, and fuzzing.
Unfortunately there is no one testing methodology that provides the
best balance of time and accuracy for every application, in this talk
we will provide metrics for helping decide what methodology should be
used for what types of applications.
