Denim Group: Keeping Security Weird at Security BSides Austin

There is a lot available for anyone attending Security BSides in Austin, TX this weekend:

  •  Plenty of talks ranging from Ben Tomhave’s “The Unintended Consequences of Beating Users with Carrot Sticks” to Paul Judge’s “Social Networking and Security: Are They Incompatible?”  I’ll be giving an updated version of my “Smart Phones Dumb Apps” presentation Friday morning at 11 am.
  •  The first-ever AppSec Guerilla Camp featuring FREE training for software developers interested in learning about security.  Attendees should bring a laptop and be ready to learn.  I’ll be doing two sessions: Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 I’ll be teaching a class on Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Remediation and Saturday from 2 to 4 I’ll be teaching a class on Designing Secure Mobile Applications.
  • Naturally, there will be another “Hackers on a Duck” event Friday night.

The 2010 Security BSides Austin was fantastic and this year’s event should be even better. Contact us if you want to meet up at Security BSides Austin.
