Web Application Firewalls – Werewolves Myths, Mist and Clouds
Seven years ago Wired Magazine proudly proclaimed “The Web is dead. Long live the Internet”, yet the web and HTTP continue to drive the world’s economy as the language of cloud, automation and modern application programming interfaces. In this talk Wynn Fenwick will expose you to real world experiences, benefits and challenges that come with “firewalling off” applications that weave together the information fabric of our generation.


Mr. Wynn Fenwick is finishing his second decade focused on information security technology service management with some of the largest Canadian technology and systems integration companies. Security is the vehicle that drives his observation risk patterns in the gaps between technology, people and process and apply them across the nine layers of the IT stack. Wynn holds several GIAC technical certifications including Web Application Penetration Tester. He has provided expert analysis of web application risk to financial industry civil actions, and advised on application security in the development life cycle for health care and service providers since 2001.
