OWASP Dallas January Meeting
January 16 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
After a long and difficult gestation, OWASP has released the new OWASP Top 10 2017. In this session, Andrew will take you through what happened, how we got here, the methodology and data underlying the evidenced based weaknesses, why there is a control in a list of weaknesses, and how to prepare for the three new Top 10 issues: XXE, Insecure Deserialization and Insufficient Logging and Monitoring. Lastly, you’ll learn how to get ready to contribute to the 2020 OWASP Top 10 by starting to collect the sort of data we need to make the Top[masked] even better.
