ISSA-NOVA July 2013 – Worst practices: How to waste 100% of your security budget

 2013_05 July Meeting

Presentation NOT Available

Featuring Rob Cheyne, speaking on Worst practices: How to waste 100% of your security budget

Despite over a decade of taking information security “seriously”, we have yet to eradicate even one of the OWASP Top 10.  The way we approach application security today often wastes a lot of time and money and doesn’t yield very good results.This interactive discussion shines a light on some of the things we do that we think are helping, but actually contribute more to the problem than the solution.  Along the way, it covers a number of common practices that are getting us nowhere fast and offers suggestions for improvement for each one.
