Pen testing being the sexy part of Infosec, the first thing most companies want to do when starting an application security program is to scan everything. Unfortunately, learning from experience, this rarely leads to good results. Using my experience in building an application security program and the best practices used by other companies, I’ll show you how to start an effective application security program in your organization. This will include laying the groundwork to ensure proper coverage, using your resources effectively and ensuring proper follow through on remediation activities.
Chris Pfoutz has 10 years of experience in a broad breadth of information security fields, including access controls, risk assessments and spending the last three years focused in his passion, software security. He’s been employed or consulted for some of the largest financial services companies in the world and is currently working internally on the Global Application Security team for Deloitte, Touche, Tomatsu Ltd. Chris is certified as a CISSP and GIAC Certified Web Application Pen Tester by the SANS Institute.

When & Where
OWASP Chicago Suburbs
OWASP Chicago Suburbs is a local chapter of the OWASP Foundation. You can learn more about OWASP Chicago Suburbs here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Chicago_Suburbs
OWASP is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to conceive, develop, acquire, operate, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, forums, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. We advocate approaching application security as a people, process, and technology problem because the most effective approaches to application security include improvements in all of these areas. We can be found at www.owasp.org.
OWASP is a new kind of organization. Our freedom from commercial pressures allows us to provide unbiased, practical, cost-effective information about application security. OWASP is not affiliated with any technology company, although we support the informed use of commercial security technology. Similar to many open-source software projects, OWASP produces many types of materials in a collaborative, open way. The OWASP Foundation is a not-for-profit entity that ensures the project's long-term success.
