SANS WhatWorks in Web Application Security Summit.
Venue: Paris Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Apr 09, 2008|
On June 2-3, organizations will share the lessons learned in their application security initiatives. Case studies in application security initiatives will be presented and dozens of questions will be answered.
Organizations that deploy web applications are facing a massive escalation in attacks by organized crime groups from Eastern Europe and Asia. Beginning two years ago, these criminal groups targeted applications instead of operating systems, because they discovered that around 70% of all web applications had security flaws...and now 80% of new malware is focused on the application layer. Applications have become the easier attack target. With that change, the criminals added a new security challengeâ€”not only must corporations and schools and governments ensure secure configuration and effective patch management, now they must also ensure the applications they deploy have no security flaws. The SANS WhatWorks in Application Security Summit 2008 brings together the pioneers who have already faced the application security problem. If you are spending or about to spend a lot of money and want to make sure the investment actually improves security these are real users who can tell you what works and what doesnâ€™t.
The only place to get...deep, dark secrets from the best minds in the world. Tough lessons from real enterprises...what really works (and what doesnâ€™t). Hands-on experience with top vendors...answers to the hard questions.
