Seeing as how I've been on the bench for roughly the past nine months, I'm looking forward to getting back to some conferences. Here's what's planned, at least for now:
9/12-9/14/12 - Looking forward to speaking again at the UNITED Security Summit in San Francisco. This year I'm talking about "Why Doing Application Security Remediation Is Like Building a Rube Goldberg Machine." (If this sounds familiar, it's because I'm going green and have recycled it from SOURCE Boston 2011.)
9/18-9/20/12 - My employer's gala event, the North American Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit in Las Vegas. This isn't a pure security event, so I enjoy talking with a wider variety of attendees. This year's panel is called "Security and DevOps: Table Stakes of Doing Business?" And I've got some heavy hitters who will be contributing to the discussion.
10/9-10/11/12 - I'll be hanging around at RSA Europe, because I really love London.
10/25-10/26 - Of course I can't possibly miss the OWASP AppSec USA conference, especially as it's in the 512 this year.
12/3-12/7/12 - In what I'm sure will be the blowout of the year, Security Zone 2012 will be gathering a whole lot of security experts in Cali, Colombia. Oh, and I'll be there too, talking about the Security Poverty Line.
It'll be great to see a lot of cool people again, and catch up on the latest research.
