Panel Discussion: State of Application Security in 2015

We invite you to join us at our next OWASP Toronto chapter meeting, where a panel of industry professionals will discuss the state of application security in 2015. Panelists will share their point of view on a number of topics, followed by an open discussion with the audience. Come prepared to learn, discuss, share, and ask questions!


  1. Appsec Wishlist: "If I could have one thing improved in application security in 2015, it would be ..."
  2. Appsec Defenders: Offensive Security is obviously thriving, but how are the Defenders doing? Has there been improvement? There are plenty of blackhat/red team rock stars, but are we giving enough credit to the blue teams?
  3. Appsec Tools: Which application security tools are doing the job right? Which ones can be further improved?
  4. Evolution of Application Security Assessments: How will the industry effect a sea change in attitude towards assessing software for security issues? The tunnel-vision model (i.e., black-box only, source code review only, configuration review only) is deficient, and the best approach is to overlap as many techniques as possible. Time-boxed approaches compound the problem, and with the increasing proliferation and complexity of applications in any given organization, scaling assessment services to all targets is bottlenecked.
  5. Appsec Talent: There are too few skilled/trained information security professionals, and too much work to do. Scaling up to meet the demand can only partially be managed through automation. Where will the next wave of reliable security professionals come from? Is training for information security skills too expensive in the age Code School? Is North Armerica in need of a CREST-like certification to establish a baseline level of coverage by a practitioner?

To be announced soon!
