DESCRIPTION:  When it comes to prioritizing software security testing,
              most people don't know where to begin. Chris Wysopal will
              explain why it is important to use a risk-based approach in
              order to effectively test security. Given the large number of
              vulnerabilities that need to be prevented, the number of test
              cases rises quickly. To perform successful security testing,
              prioritization is paramount.

              The keynote will illustrate white box and black box analysis
              techniques coupled with threat modeling to discover the
              highest risk threats. Attendees will learn how to focus
              testing on areas that are most likely to be attacked and on
              the vulnerabilities that will have the highest impact.
