Mykonos Software’s Director of Product Management, Al Huizenga presented at the Cornerstones of Trust event in Silicon Valley. The event held by ISSA (Silicon Valley and San Francisco chapters) and Infragard provided a fascinating array of topics and security perspectives.
Al’s presentation to IT Security professionals was titled “Pro-actively Managing web Application Abuse” and was included in the track Proactive Defense: Technologies to Overcome Hidden Threats.
This coming Monday, March 15th, at 5:30pm, Mykonos Software will be hosting a joint OWASP and ISSA meeting at their offices in Rochester, NY.
The speaker will be Security Innovation’s CEO, Ed Adams. The topic for his speech is “Why Software is Still Insecure: Conclusions from a Ten-Year Study”.
Mr Adams will share his insights on this thought provoking issue. His presentation will focus on his idea that software security depends to a great degree on an organization’s application security maturity (ASM). ASM can be charted on a continuum from the “panic scramble” through the “pit of despair” to the “security-enabled business.” Kolodgy and Adams draw on 10 years of research to distill these application security concepts into a visual model that enables any organization to determine its maturity and chart a path of progress toward secure application development. The session will cover business drivers for application security, common mistakes, best practices, case studies, controls, prioritization, planning, measurement, and use of tools and training.
