6:00 PM to 6:45 Pm topic: Enforcing Code & Security Standards with Semgrep by Luke O’Malley

Luke O’Malley is the co-founder of r2c, a company profoundly improving software security and reliability. As its Head of Product, he works with the world’s leading developers to improve their build tooling and development practices. Previously he led developer tools teams at Palantir, wrote software to support counter-terrorism efforts, and researched propulsion systems for deep-space exploration. Luke is an angel investor in the dev tools and security space. He received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. His other interests include beekeeping, adventure motorcycling, and typography.

Speaker will discuss a program analysis tool we’re developing called Semgrep. It's a multilingual semantic tool for writing security and correctness queries on source code (for Python, Java, Go, C, and JS) with a simple “grep-like” interface. The original author, Yoann Padioleau, worked on Semgrep’s predecessor, Coccinelle, for Linux kernel refactoring, and later developed Semgrep while at Facebook. He’s now full time with us at r2c.
Semgrep is a free open-source program analysis toolkit that finds bugs using custom analysis we’ve written and OSS code checks. Semgrep is ideal for security researchers, product security engineers, and developers who want to find complex code patterns without extensive knowledge of ASTs or advanced program analysis concepts.

6:45 to 7:30 PM topic: Threat Hunting: Uncovering the tracks of an attack By Shaikh Fareed

Fareed is working as a senior security consultant for an entity in Qatar where he leads SOC operations. His major experience and interests in the field of security are threat hunting, pentesting, malware analysis, DFIR and reverse engineering.

This event is free to attend for both members and non-members of OWASP/Null and is open to anyone interested in information security and cybersecurity awareness. Please note that you MUST RSVP it will help us in organizing.

As this will be a recurring event, we welcome as many paper submissions as possible, and reserve keeps interesting talk proposals for future editions.

The talk proposal should abide by the OWASP/Null principles: to promote and disseminate knowledge and tools in cybersecurity that respect its core values, openness, support for innovation, global reach, and integrity. The talks should be vendor-neutral, which is not publicity talks for a specific company or a proprietary tool, but about interesting experiences insecurity that can engage and foster discussion in the local community.
