Heading to OWASP AppSec 2013

small.jpegThe annual AppSec conference is approaching, and this year looks to be a great one.

 

The talks and training look phenomenal for this year, and I'll be on a few panels myself: a mobile security discussion talking about real-world challenges facing companies today around BYoD, and a panel discussion upcoming changes to the OWASP Mobile Top 10. 

 

Whether you're coming for training, talks, panels, networking, or just to visit NYC for a week, I definitely look forward to seeing you there.

 

We'll be at booth 21 on the vendor floor, and we're hosting a reception on Wednesday as well. Definitely reach out to me at @danielmiessler if you want to get together and chat while at the con.

 

For more information about the con, check out this post.
