DESCRIPTION:    Many people don't know where to start when it comes to
                testing software for security. It's important to use a
                risk-based approach while leveraging knowledge about the
                software to get the most effective security testing. To be
                successful at security testing, one must prioritize.

                In this class, Chris Wysopal will discuss how to use
                white-box and black-box analysis techniques, coupled with
                threat modeling, to discover the highest risk threats to a
                program. Attendees will learn how to focus testing on areas
                where difficulty of attack is least and the impact is
                highest.
