Hyperguarding your Web Applications


Posted by hyperguard on October 16, 2009

It’s getting closer to OWASP’s AppSecDC show, Nov 10-13, and this year’s show will feature the announcement of an updated Top 10 web vulnerabilities list for the first time since 2007. This list impacts the entire WebAppSec industry and there are a number of interesting effects anticipated here.

How will these updates impact PCI-DSS which is currently in the process of redefining requirements for a virtualized market? The OWASP Top 10 forms an important part of PCI so any updates are sure to have an impact.

What impact will this have on the Cloud Security Alliance’s (CSA) guidelines for the industry? Again, they factored the Top 10 in predominantly. The CSA is preparing an update of these guidelines before the end of the year. Our Alex Meisel is contributing heavily this time around to the WAF section.

If you’re going and would like to meet up with Art of Defence’s Georg Hess, leave a comment and we’ll get you on his calendar.

Hope to see you in DC!
