OWASP Austin Chapter Meeting June 30th, 2020

When: Tuesday, June 30th, 2020 @ 12:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Where: Online @ Zoom!

Title: Mobile Security in a Remote World

Attacks on the endpoint are no longer limited to traditional endpoints like laptops and workstations; mobile devices have been ranked the #1 hardest enterprise asset to defend. Compounded by bring-your-own device policies, enterprises are struggling to protect themselves against a growing variety of mobile threats. In this session, we will dive into the challenges with securing mobile in the enterprise security space and the evolution of mobile device security. Join us to learn about why attackers are shifting to target mobile, validated by investigations from the Cybereason Nocturnus team, and how the enterprise security industry is moving to address them.


Allie Mellen is a security strategist at Cybereason. She has spent several years in the cybersecurity space and has been recognized globally for her security research. Over the past ten years, she has held various engineering, development, and consulting roles in the technology sector. She received her B.S. degree in computer engineering from Boston University

Both the Call for Papers (CFP) and Call for Training (CFT) are now open. Deadline for submission is June 30, 2020. Submit your proposals today!

We are very much aware of the current concerns with COVID-19 and that an in-person event may not be possible. At this point in time we are continuing to plan for an in-person pre-conference training and conference, being optimistic that by October the situation will improve. However, we want to ensure we have alternative plans, such as making the training and the conference presentations virtual. With that in mind, we request that training and presentations be designed for conducting either in-person or virtual. If virtual, we will provide the necessary technical guidelines and assistance to trainers and presenters.

See the LASCON website for more information.
