LASCON 2018 – Austin TX: Locks, Socks & Powerful Talks

Brinqa spent two days amongst brilliant minds in Application Security and Development at the LASCON 2018 Conference on October 25-26, 2018 in Austin TX. The event featured training, keynotes, experts sharing their knowledge, and a happy hour – complete with a mechanical bull (which has been a historic fixture at all LASCON events).

Classic video game consoles were placed around the expo floor and hallways, and as a #HumbleBrag, Brinqa’s own Troy Vera held the top score on Mario Bros. Amid all the fun and friendship, there was a true focus on the importance of a modern and serious approach to AppSec.

Attendees included web app developers, security engineers, mobile developers, and information security professionals – all of whom had their own unique approach to cybersecurity. Hacker handles were the name du jour on the badges and because curious minds love a challenge, there was a lock-picking zone to flex one’s manual mischief.

Some event-goers were dazzled with fancy socks at other booths (who isn’t, right?), but the “cool” prizes were the YETI Tumblers that were won at the Brinqa booth. Here are the 4 winners:

As we packed up the booth, said our goodbyes, and exchanged business cards and LinkedIn profiles there was a sense of community and connections that go well-beyond the expo floor. To those whom we met, shared a booth demo with, and enjoyed each others’ company, we appreciate the chance to share about Brinqa – schedule a demo here and see for yourself why we are the industry’s leading cybersecurity management platform.
