Gunnar Peterson and I will be presenting at OWASP September 20-23rd. OWASP AppSec USA will be at the Minneapolis Convention center in – you guessed it – Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year’s theme is “Your life is in the cloud”, so there are plenty of talks on mobile app security and how to weave security into your cloud environment. Gunnar is presenting on Mobile Web Services, discussing mobile application vulnerabilities in the web services layer. I’ll be presenting CloudSec 12-Step, a look at foundational security precautions developers need to consider when building and deploying cloud applications.

They have scheduled many other great talks as well. And personally, I am willing to bet autumn weather in Minnesota will be awesome! Okay, perhaps my perspective is skewed – Arizona just set a record for the hottest August in history – some 33 days this summer over 110 degrees – but regardless, Minnesota should be very nice. Come by and check out the presentations. As always, we look forward to seeing friends – shoot us an email if you want to meet up that week.
