"We are extremely excited to have Bill Cheswick to be a keynote speaker. Ches is a well known security researcher with AT&T Research and his book Firewalls and Internet Security has been influential to many security practitioners, including myself. We can't wait to hear Ches's thoughts on application security."
Cassio Goldschmidt, Co-Chair of Conference Organizing Committee and OWASP Los Angeles Chapter board member says "we are very excited to have David Rice as one of our keynotes.

"Widely acclaimed for his creativity and technical skills," Goldschmidt continues, "HD Moore brings a distinctive perspective to the AppSec audience as a keynote speaker.
