The event is a one of a kind experience for information security professionals, developers, and QA and testing professionals, as they gather at the beach from around the world to learn and share knowledge and experiences about secure systems and secure development methodologies.

National Instruments
Information Security Program Owner
Austin, TX
Information Security has always been Josh's passion and in early 2010 National Instruments finally gave him the opportunity to become the Information Security Program Owner.  Today, he continues to run their security program handling everything from compliance to enterprise risk management to vulnerability management and more; none of which existed prior to me starting the program. Josh has instructed many different trainings internally and have presented externally at a large number of conferences including BlackHat, BSides Las Vegas, OWASP AppSecUSA, MISTI InfoSecWorld, HouSecCon, and TRISC as meetings for OWASP, ISSA, and SPIN.  I have a BS in CS, but I enjoy breaking web applications much more than I ever enjoyed developing them.

Specialties: linux, unix, apache, mysql, oracle application server, tomcat, websphere, weblogic, bea, ibm, web application security, proxies, tokenization, metasploit, vulnerability management, enterprise risk management, compliance (sox & pci), and much more!
