Description

This is a double header edition of the OWASP Vancouer meet-up series


1st Speaker: Srikanth Ramu (6:30-7:30pm)

Title: Personal data in test public MQTT brokers

Abstract: In this talk I’ll present my study on personal data being published in public test MQTT brokers. We will cover a high level introduction to MQTT brokers, the type of private data which was found in test brokers and general recommendations on the use of test brokers.

Speaker Bio: Srikanth Ramu has over 8 years of experience in application security and secure architecture. Prior to security, he has about 10 years of experience in software design, development and leadership roles. In his day job he is currently focusing on cloud applications and his recent interest is in Machine Learning and exploring its application in security.


2nd Speaker: Jeevan Singh (7:30-8:30pm)

Title: How to run an AppSec program on a (Canadian) budget

Abstract: More and more Canadian software companies are coming to a realization that they need a strong Application Security program to compete and succeed. Unfortunately many of them don't have the necessary budget as compared to our neighbors to the south. There are techniques to run a successful program with a shoe string budget, but it requires a lot of elbow grease, ingenuity and luck. This talk will cover how to build an Application Security program, where to invest your time and energy and how best to scale yourself for success.

Speaker Bio: Jeevan Singh is a Senior Security Engineer for an HR software company, where he is embedding security into all aspects of the software development process. Jeevan enjoys building security culture within organizations and educating staff on security best practices. Jeevan is responsible for a wide variety of tasks including: architecting security solutions, working with development teams to resolve security vulnerabilities and building out security features. Before life in the security space, Jeevan had a wide variety of development and leadership roles over the past 15 years.
