OWASP Austin Chapter Meeting September 2022

When: Tuesday, September 27th, 2022 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Presentation: Insider’s Guide to Mobile AppSec with OWASP MASVS w/ Brendan Hann

From the birth of MASVS and MSTG in January 2018 to the most recent updates, the OWASP Mobile Security Project has advanced the state of mobile app security testing dramatically. As supporters and contributors to the Mobile Security Project at OWASP, we have pen tested thousands of mobile apps and scanned millions of commercial apps in the app stores over the years… and have identified the most common security issues that plague developers and security teams. Whether you are new to mobile pen testing or a veteran looking for the latest tools and tactics, join this session to learn 10 keys to mobile appsec leveraging OWASP MASVS and practical real-world experience.
