Attack Aware Applications - Presentations Around The World

Several years ago I started the OWASP AppSensor project to build a strategy for equipping applications with real time attack detection and response.  The project has really grown since its inception and has many excellent contributors actively growing the project.

Here is a list of the currently planned 2011 presentations on Attack Aware Applications, aka AppSensor.  I hope you have the opportunity to attend one and learn more.
