Most organizations today are constantly exposed to threats that they’ve never anticipated before. Today’s attacker community is constantly maturing and refining its approach capabilities. Over the past decade, traditional single style attacks like cross site scripting and sql injection and service abuse were the most ubiquitous vulnerabilities contributing to security incidents. However, they have evolved to become more targeted and multifaceted.
Additionally the attack surface is consistently changing. Advancements in web technology virtualization, mobility and Cloud all introduce a new dynamic in a comprehensive vulnerability management program.
This program will focus on those new dynamics.
January 2012 – ISSA PROGRAM – Sponsored by Core Security

Start Time – End Time2:10 – 2:55Session DescriptionTraditional network, web and end-user assessment initiatives create overwhelming amounts of data – data that is difficult to process effectively or with any consistency. This data does not equal intelligence. Nor do pages and pages of CVE’s – even those matched against known exploits. Intelligence is realized only when context is applied to information – giving it meaning and operational significance. CORE Security will review how their customers are advancing and scaling vulnerability management with an integrated solution that consolidates, analyzes, and prioritizes operational risk in business terms, not network bits and bytes. SpeakersTim Byrne, Sr. Mgr. – Technical Pre-Sales and Services for Core SecurityBio(s)Tim Byrne is the Sr. Manager of Technical Pre-Sales and Services for Core Security whose team provides pre-sales and training for all of Core Security’s enterprise products which includes Core IMPACT and Core INSIGHT.

Session TitleHacking The Big Four Databases: Exploiting Top Vulnerabilities & Mis-ConfigurationsStart Time – End Time2:55 – 3:30Session Description
According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, in the past year and a half, there have been close to 900 breaches and over 28,000,000 records compromised. With groups like Anonymous and LulzSec continuously hacking into major corporations and government agencies, do you wonder if you’re next?
No organization, industry, or government agency is immune to the proliferation of complex attacks and malicious behavior. Ensuring database security is a priority for organizations interested in protecting sensitive data and passing audits.
Over the course of this presentation, a description of some of the sophisticated methods used in invading enterprise databases will be discussed, and the evolution of the security issues and features in each will be provided. A demonstration of popular attacks will also be presented.
The presentation will conclude by proposing essential steps IT managers can take to securely configure, maintain databases, and defend against malicious breaches entirely. Attendees will leave with a basic understanding of the most effective methods for protecting their data, an enterprise’s most prized asset, from attackers today and in the future.

While most current webapp testing focuses on purely blackbox testing methodologies, we will examine the art of integrating manual static code reviews that go beyond the standard source code analysis tools. As a hands-on example we will examine the presenter’s recent zero-day discoveries in the open source webapp OpenDocMan. For completeness the presentation will cover various avenues that are tested within an assessment and show how they may or may not lead to vulnerabilities that are exploitable. Some of the methodologies presented may be generalized from web applications to non-web apps.SpeakersKenneth F. BelvaBio(s)Kenneth F. Belva is the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of bloginfosec.com.

ISSA Members, ISACA Members and FS/ISAC Members (and other ISAC’s)
This program has been created for information security practitioners,
Mobile Application Developers – Seeking to understand the latest in assessment trends and methodologies leveraged in reducing the number of security related flaws
Security Assessors – Striving to not only identify the next vulnerability and recommendation but understanding the context in which it should be presented, allowing for socialization of the vulnerability to the appropriate stakeholders and the recommendation of technical and procedural remedies to minimize repeat occurrence and minimization of risk.
Security Management & Executives – With a goal of understanding industry practices trends, and seeking perspective on implementing technical assessment activities in the context of a broader application security program.
