BIO - Vincent Hopson
I am an Embedded Software Engineer that has gone to the dark side (Sales Engineering). I’ve spent the last 20 or so years working in Software Security/Quality in a variety of Static Analysis companies, with a short stint in code defense systems. I relax by playing games (twitch or strategy), or flying my drone.

Attack Surface Detector-
“The White Hat’s Advantage” explores classical “defense in depth”. Through a lens of World War I, we look into why it is important to know your attacker and plan defenses around that knowledge. Two tools from OWASP help in this regard; the Attack Surface Detector, and Code Pulse.

These tools help illuminate dark corners of your web application, and show you where your virtual cobwebs exist. Vincent will give a brief talk about their importance, and a demonstration.
