Highlights will include keynotes from Neal Ziring of the Information Assurance Directorate of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Ron Ross of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), panel discussions of federal CISOs on their experiences with implementing application security, 50 plenary presentations, invaluable interaction and networking with attendees and presenters, a custom-made capture the flag contest by members of OWASP DC, and many of the best talks available by leading personalities in the field of web application security. Oh, and rockets.
Also this year, AppSec DC has partnered with entities within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Security Agency, and other government agencies who will be contributing content focusing on Software Assurance and the role that that plays in areas such as protecting Critical Infrastructure or Supply Chain Risk Management.
In addition to two days of great speaking content, a track by the federal government, keynotes and panels, AppSec DC will also provide two days of world class training on applications security from a variety of vendors at a fraction of the cost found at other events.
