OWASP & WASC AppSec 2007 conference

The OWASP/WASC Black Hat cocktail party was so successful it only made sense to join forces again, this for an upcoming conference. OWASP & WASC AppSec 2007 is scheduled for Nov 12 – 15 @ eBay campus in San Jose, California. This will be an entire conference dedicated to web application security and something not to be missed. In fact, we’re a little nervous because the venue might not be able to fit everyone (300 max) wanting to attend.

Currently we’re busy formalizing the agenda and coordinating the logistics with parties and events. If the wish list pans out, we’ll have an amazing speaker/topic line-up, a ton of industry experts in attendance, security professionals from all over silicon valley, and a hopefully a few surprises to go with it. The official announcement is below and I'll update the blog with new developments.

FYI: There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities for interested organizations.

OWASP and WASC have joined forces for this year's AppSec 2007 conference being held at eBay in San Jose, CA on Nov 12-15. A huge concentration of the industry leading experts will be in attendance presenting high quality web application security content. AppSec 2007 offers a unique opportunity for security professionals, software developers, and IT managers to get up to speed on the latest and greatest attack techniques, defense strategies, and industry trends in an atmosphere of peers. The conference format and venue is also perfect for networking and sharing experiences with others that are down in the trenches. AppSec 2007 expects to exceed all attendance records from the previously years, making space extremely limited. There's only room for approximately 300 attendees. So if you're planning to come, please register soon.
