This Wednesday April 25th, I will be part of a panel at the OWASP LA Security Summit where Jerry Hoff VP, Static Code Analysis Division at WhiteHat Security, will be speaking about Webgoat. Shakeel Tufail, Federal Practice Director for HP Enterprise Security Solutions, will be speaking on "Software (In)Security - Challenges to securing software". Noa Bar Yosef, Senior Security Strategist at Imperva, will be speaking on "De-Anonymizing Anonymous". A concluding panel, moderated by Richard Greenberg, Information Security Officer for LA County Public Health, will have the speakers and myself discussing different aspects of De-Anonymizing Anonymous.
The focus of the panel is upon Recruitment and communication i.e. how Anonymous leverages social networks to recruit its members and pick a target, application attack i.e sequence the steps Anonymous hackers deploy to take data and bring down websites, DDoS i.e. the DDoS techniques deployed to take down websites and finally the key mitigation steps that organizations need to take if they ever become a target.
