Into application security or want to learn more? Then OWASP is the group for you. Check out the details on their next meetup, RSVP via eventbrite:
Over the years, two key techniques have emerged as the most effective for finding security vulnerabilities in software: Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) and Static Application Security Testing (SAST). While DAST and SAST each possess unique strengths, the “Holy Grail” of security testing is thought to be “hybrid” — a technique that combines and correlates the results from both testing methods, maximizing the advantages of each. Until recently, however, a critical element has been missing from first generation hybrid solutions: information about the inner workings and behavior of applications undergoing DAST and SAST analysis.
This presentation will introduce you to the next generation of hybrid security analysis — what it is, how it works, and the benefits it offers. It will also address (and dispel) the claims against hybrid, and leave participants with a clear understanding of how the new generation of hybrid will enable organizations to resolve their most critical software security issues faster and more cost-effectively than any other available analysis technology.
