OWASP Introduction, Welcome and News - Sam Stepanyan, Sherif Mansour and Andra Lezza

Welcome and a brief update on OWASP Projects & Events from the OWASP London Chapter Leaders

Talk 1: "Preventing subdomain takeover with OWASP Domain Protect" - Paul Schwarzenberger

Paul Schwarzenberger, project leader of OWASP Domain Protect, describes how the OVO Energy Bug Bounty program led to the launch of a new OWASP project to prevent subdomain takeovers, and gives a live demonstration of detection of vulnerable domain records, followed by automated takeover.

Talk 2: "The Security Tools Crash and the Next Generation of Cloud Native Platform" - Mark Curphey

Mark Curphey, founder of OWASP recently wrote an article called The Security Tools Crash is Coming that had a lot of praise from security practitioners and unsurprisingly met with some disdain from some security startup founders and venture capitalists. In this talk Mark will run through the key points of the article and then talk about what he believes in the next generation of tools meeting AppSec and CloudSec into interoperable cloud native platforms.

Talk 3: OWASP 2023 - Listening Tour
Mark Curphey was recently elected to the 2023 OWASP Board on a manifesto to modernize OWASP. He is on a tour of European chapters listening to feedback from members and chapter attendees about what they would like to see OWASP do. This session will be at the end of the night, so we can run over and continue the conversation in the pub
