Welcome to the OWASP Day II Italy Conference for 2008. Following on from the great success of OWASP Day I in 2007 the second conference has taken place in March 2008.

  • The conference represents a day of Web App Sec debate for all the OWASP chapters in the world during the week from 31st March to 5th April.
  • Thanks to the collaboration with the Master in Information Security of the "La Sapienza" University, last 31st March we hosted the Conference: "The State of the Art of the Web Application Security and the OWASP guidelines in the Companies".
  • OWASP Day 2 was an all day Conference.


Conference topics:

  • The evolution of attacks and countermeasures for the security in the Web Application.
  • Case studies of how the Companies have adopted the OWASP Guidelines in their SDLC.

Organization and goals:

  • The event showed several points of discussion: during the first phase we talked from a higher level of the topic, and then we discussed the problem from a technical point of view.
  • As conclusion of the day, we organized a round table with international guests discussing the more interesting subjects come out during the event.
  • Conference goal was that to create a debate on which will be the evolution of the Web Application Security.

We received more than 250 subscriptions and more than 200 attendees!
