WhiteHat hosting regional luncheons in NY & NJ

As we did last year, 2008 will see WhiteHat Security host several regional luncheons around the U.S. - the soonest held in New Jersey and New York on February 6 & 7 respectively. Registered guests are treated to some tasty food, an entertaining show (timely stuff about web application security), a bit of company promotion, but best of all an opportunity to interact with industry peers. The groups are kept small, maybe 30 people at the most, and they’re really a lot of fun! This event will feature yours truly and Randy Morrison (V.P. of technology, SecurView), who we’re excited to have with us.

Mr. Grossman will open the program with "Top Ten Hacks of 2007 and What They Bode for 2008." This reflection on 2007's most innovative and dangerous methods of attack provides the foundation for what issues corporate security professionals should address in 2008. He will discuss attack techniques that compromise both customer and corporate information including cross site request forgery, javascript malware and browser-based attacks.

Randy follows with "The Business Case for Managed Security Services." Due to compliance mandates and recent high profile security breaches, organizations clearly understand the importance of a robust security program, and have invested heavily in security technology to address everything from network security to securing applications and data. However, getting return on this investment requires similar investments in process, people, and skills. Managed security solutions represent a cost effective way to gain the expertise necessary to defend the organization from threat, demonstrate compliance, and continuously optimize security posture.

Hope to see some of you there!

How about doing one in the midwest? Say Minneapolis may be? :)
