Like 0day, But for CISOs

Yes, I realize it's a slight exaggeration ... but the reality is CISOs look at things differently.

 

While we that lovingly embrace the term security nerd are forever chasing the next cool, sexy, 0day attack vector or breakage - your CISO probably gets more excited about "compensating controls" and things of that nature.  If you really want to make a CISO sweat, as them to show you the ROI on their security program!

 

So with that in mind, someone commented the other day in one of my "Magic Numbers - The 5 KPIs for Web Application Security" that "this is like 0day for CISOs" ...so I'm running with it.

 

Can you demonstrate value of a web app security program?  What if you took the job of CISO today and the CIO asked you to do just that?  How would you do it?

 

Those questions, and probably many, many more will be answered during my talk at OWASP AppSec DC, on Wednesday, Nov. 10th!  If you haven't gotten your ticket yet, don't panic... there's always room for more.

See you there!  Bring your thinking & participating shoes ...heck bring your CISO or manager ...trust me.
