When I think of Tel Aviv, I imagine a robust, young culture, living a good, fun life. Not only is the culture conducive to a young life style, its tech industry continues to gain traction. As Wired Magazine said last August, "Israeli startups have always been high on Silicon Valley shopping lists, but Tel Aviv is beginning to shake off its reputation as Europe’s exit capital." Zebra, the medical diagnostics company, MyHeritage online family tree service, Via ride sharing service, and the Waze navigation app, as well as dozens of other influencial start-ups call Tel Aviv home. This places Tel Aviv at the heart of the tech industry in Isreal and encourages conferences and gatherings on a regional, as well as global scale.
In this broadcast, I speak with Avi Douglen and Ofer Moar, co-chairs of the upcoming Global AppSec Conference in Tel Aviv. They are both active participates in OWASP and the security community. I called them to find out more about the conference, how it's different from other conferences and what participants can expect as takeaways from the event.
