    As some of you already know October is the National Cyber Security Awareness Month so everywhere across the globe various events are held.

    In Romania, OWASP Bucharest AppSec Conference was at its 5th annual edition. This time around there was a 3-day conference, with 11th and 12th of October being training days and Capture the Flag (CTF) contest and the 13th day was packed with presentations and panels. Industry practitioners shared their experiences, knowledge and projections.

    The objective of the OWASP’s Bucharest AppSec Conference is to raise awareness about application security and to bring high-quality security content provided by renowned professionals in the European region.

    Among the talks I would like to emphasize the Women in AppSec Panel with Giorgiana Vlăsceanu, Alexandra Anghel, Daniela Ene and Daniel Barbu, moderated by Iulia Ivanov. Industry people were talking to each other and the public about how girls could and why they should focus more on this field and also why the reality is a bit different. One thing that resonated with me is that women tend to not take as many chances as their peers, which stands in their way big time. They should also not be afraid to ask for guidance or help when needed for fear of being judged or any other reason.

    On a more technical note, the talk about Protecting against credential stuffing attacks was also a in-depth review on how to keep your credentials safe from automated web injection.

    Sony, Yahoo or Dropbox are just a few of the names that were affected by this type of attack so getting to understand how it works under the hood and what you can do to safekeep your credential data was a welcome guidance.

    We especially liked the vibe of the conference and the people attending, it was a great chance to see people from the field and exchange ideas. The talks triggered a lot of ice breakers among the attendees, which, looking back, makes the conference seem like a genuine community.

    The tracks included overall the following presentations:
