Welcome and a brief update on OWASP Projects & Events from the OWASP London Chapter Leaders

Can DevSecOps Prevent the Impending Software Apocalypse? - Jeff Williams

When Marc Andreessen said, “software is eating the world,” he saw business literally reinvented as software. But as software is built faster, becomes more complex and interconnected, and handles more critical functions and data, it’s clear modern software has outstripped our ability to secure it. DevOps has produced stunning results for software speed and quality, but do they translate for security? In this talk, Jeff will present the “Three Ways of Security” – an interpretation of the DevOps classic, “The Phoenix Project” for security. You’ll learn how to get your security work flowing, how to create continuous security feedback, and how to create a culture of security experimentation and learning. Bring your hard questions – Jeff likes a “town hall” style meeting!

Cookie Security - Myths and Misconceptions - David Johansson

Cookies are an integral part of any web application and secure management of cookies is essential to web security. However, during my years as a security consultant I've often encountered various myths and misconceptions regarding cookie security from both developers as well as other security professionals. This talk will dive into the details of cookie security and highlight some of the lesser known facts about well-known cookie attributes.This talk will give you a solid understanding of the pitfalls affecting cookie security, the risks associated with these, and how you can leverage modern security specifications to enhance the protection of cookies in your web application.
