DESCRIPTION: "Software Assurance - Solving the Application Security
             Challenge for Internally Developed and 3rd Party Software"

             Whether you are buying or building software, it is imperative
             that the security of the software can be validated in a timely
             and accurate manner to properly assess the risk and potential
             impact to your organization.

             Government and large enterprises are similar in that they both
             require assistance in the following areas:

             -Assessing the security of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS)
             software where source code is unavailable

             -Analyzing internally developed software for security quality

             -Evaluating the security of code developed offshore

             -Reviewing software as part of a Request for Proposal (RFP)
             procurement process

             In his presentation, Veracode Founder and CTO Chris Wysopal
             will discuss how to create an independent application security
             testing program that effectively automates and manages the
             operational risk of internally developed applications, as well
             as externally procured applications and components.
