SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2013) - WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, today announced its roster of executive speaking sessions at and around the annual RSA Conference 2013, taking place February 25 - March 1 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

What, Who, When & Where:

  • WhiteHat Security Corporate Overview
    Speaker: Stephanie Fohn, Chief Executive Officer, WhiteHat Security
    When: Monday, February 25th; 4:15 - 4:30pm PT
    Where: AGC West Conference - The Westin San Francisco: 50 3rd Street, San Francisco, CA

  • Session HT-T18: Black Hat Budgeting: Raising the Cost of Compromise
    Moderator: Brian Krebs, Publisher, Krebs on Security LLC
    Jeremiah Grossman, Chief Technology Officer, WhiteHat Security
    Richard Bejtlich, Chief Security Officer, Mandiant
    Tim Keanini, Chief Research Officer, nCircle
    Christofer Hoff, Chief Security Architect, Juniper Networks

    Where: Moscone Center South, Room 135
    Summary: Is "patch and pray" your security modus operandi or "big budget, big time?" Many experts say both fall short, instead calling for a radically new security paradigm -- black hat budgeting. Bottom line? Make it expensive for attackers to succeed on your turf and they'll pick on someone else. Increase costs for bad guys, while building strategic protections and less rigid defenses into your enterprise.

  • Session ASEC-W21 & STU-W26B: Application Security Everywhere: Getting Over the Old and Making the New
    Speaker: Jeremiah Grossman, CTO, WhiteHat Security
    When: Wednesday, February 27; 8:00 - 9:00am PT (Presentation) & 3:00 - 3:20pm PT (Workshop)
    Where: Moscone Center South, Room 132 & Room 300
    Summary: There are two things to consider in spreading application security across an entire organization: dealing with the enormous backlog of vulnerable Web code from eras before and then integrating secure coding into your current development pace to fortify the next codebase for tomorrow. Two strategies for addressing past and present software security need to be highlighted as breaches continue.

  • Session END-R33: Just In Time Security: Difficulty of Being Proactive in Cyber Environments
    Laura Mather, Co-founder and Chief Visionary, Silver Tail Systems
    Jeremiah Grossman, CTO, WhiteHat Security
    Laz Lazarikos, Chief Information Security Officer, Fortune 100 Retailer
    Michael Fowkes, Senior Vice President, Fraud Prevention and Security Analytics, Zions Bancorporation
    When: Thursday, February 28; 10:40 - 11:40am PT
    Where: Moscone Center South, Room 309
    Summary: This panel will discuss how the explosion in the number of web and mobile apps has made proactively identifying threats infeasible. Because of this, organizations are finding it is more economical to only find and address vulnerabilities once an attacker has found the vulnerability. Industry leaders will give example case studies and best practices currently used in the industry.

In addition to its speaking calendar, the company will host customers, prospects and RSA attendees at its Carnival in Rio party to be held at ROE Nightclub on February 26 from 6-10pm. Carnival in Rio will feature performances by the Samba Queen and Energia do Samba Brazilian Dance troupe accompanied by Brazilian drummers and more.
