I thought I would take this opportunity to invite the agile admin readers to LASCON. LASCON (Lonestar Application Security Conference) is happening in Austin, TX on October 29th, 2010. The conference is sponsored by OWASP (the Open Web App Security Project) and is an entire day of quality content on web app security. We’ll be there!
The speaker list is still in the works, but so far we have two presentations from this years BlackHat conference, several published authors, and the Director for Software Assurance in the National Cyber Security Division of the Department of Homeland Security just to name a few, and that’s only the preliminary round of acceptances.
Do you remember a few years ago when there was a worm going around MySpace that infected user profile pages at the rate of over one million in 20 hours? Yeah, the author of that worm is speaking at the conference. How can you beat that?
I have been planning this conference for a few months and am pretty excited about it. If you are can make it to Austin on October 29th, we would love to meet you at LASCON.
