Description

Is the OWASP Top 10 2017 the smartest or dumbest thing in cyber security?
OUTLINE:
With the imminent release of the updated OWASP Top 10 (for 2017/2018) let’s take some time to discuss and debate it.
In this session we’ll cover the recent changes to the OWASP Top 10, where they come from and what they mean for the industry. Without going into the technical details, we’ll examine what differences, if any, the change mean to the management and auditing of security policies related to software and penetration testing.
However, at a more fundamental level, we will discuss and debase the OWASP Top 10 itself. Is the OWASP Top 10 still relevant in today’s industry? Is it too simple? Too complex? Is it the single most important aspect of application security, or do we need something different?
This will be an interactive session, because we will all have experiences and opinion on Top 10/25 lists and how they can be used. The aim of this session is to discuss and share those experiences, meaning we can all walk away with a bit more knowledge.
