- Montreal 2012
Almost every day now, we are told in the news about some huge hacking incident resulting from a vulnerable application in some organization. Unfortunately, we are rarely told about less sensational intrusions. Who are the guys behind those incidents and what suddenly brings their attention to a particular victim?
During this presentation, the audience will discover the "who", "what" and "why" of application security. We will not only talk about the "bad guys" but also about what is being done on the bright side of the picture, by developers, and by other people also involved in software defense.
