ISSA National Capital Chapter March meeting topic:

Current State of Application Security
by Aravind Venkataraman

Abstract
Our presentation will center around the current state of application security; we will delve into new research of application security practices at over 75 companies. We will cover software security strategies and tactics used by your peers as they are practiced “in the wild”. Statistics from the real world will be balanced with war stories from the field to illustrate foundational principles of starting and sustaining programs, as well as “what not to do” gotchas that can kill an initiative in its tracks. We will then open up the floor for discussion where you can share your experiences and hear from your colleagues and peers.
