Presentation 1: OWASP Mobile Top Ten 2014 - The New "Lack of Binary Protection" Category by Matt Clemens
Recently, there has been a new addition to the OWASP Mobile Top Ten. At AppSec California, OWASP debuted the 2014 list and briefly highlighted examples of threats in the new M10 category – Lack of Binary Protections. In Matt's talk, Matt will discuss the new category in much more depth. He educates the audience about the prevalence of binary risks in both iPhone and Android mobile apps and highlights the mobile app risks that relate to this new category and how to leverage particular OWASP Projects for the solution. By the end of this talk, you will have a solid understanding of binary risk and how to begin thinking about solutions to this category.
Presentation 2: Managing Application Layer DDoS Attacks by Kevin Nassery
DDoS attacks are a well-understood problem in many ways, but the evolution applicatio layer attacks and the arms race between attackers and defenders must be understood to ensure that enterprises have an appropriate and effective response strategy. This talk is meant as a primer to kick-start your organization's DDoS response strategy, and help security practitioners understand both the mechanics of the attack and th vital controls and response actions in play for the enterprse defender.

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.
