Upcoming Virginia OWASP Talk: Conducting Application Assessments

I will be presenting to the Virginia OWASP chapter on Thursday August 6th at 6pm.  The location is 13200 Woodland Park Road in Herndon, VA.  For more info check here.  The presentation abstract is:

This talk will review a number of application assessment techniques and discuss the types of security vulnerabilities they are best suited to identify as well as how the different approaches can be used in combination to produce more thorough and insightful results. Code review will be compared to penetration testing and the capabilities of automated tools will be compared to manual techniques. In addition, the role of threat modeling and architecture analysis will be examined. The goal is to illuminate assessment techniques that go beyond commodity point-and-click approaches to web application or code scanning.

The talk will be followed by a panel discussion, which should be a good one.  As always, OWASP meetings are free and open to all.  Hope to see folks there.
