Title: Making Vulnerability Management Less Painful with OWASP DefectDojo

OWASP DefectDojo Project


DefectDojo was created in 2013 when one security engineer at Rackspace stupidly opened his mouth in front of his leadership team. Vulnerability management is traditionally tedious, time consuming, and mentally draining. DefectDojo attempts to streamline vulnerability management with automation centered around templating, report generation, metrics, scanner consolidation, and baseline self-service tools. DefectDojo is currently used by multiple large enterprises and has core contributors from five different companies. It has made several engineers' lives much easier, and it can help you too. Got a ton of findings to consolidate and report on? DefectDojo has you covered. Need to have a dashboard of your team’s work? DefectDojo has you covered. Tired of boilerplate report generation? DefectDojo does that for you. Come check out how to make vulnerability management less painful and speed up your appsec program in this talk with demo.


Greg Anderson is the project leader for OWASP DefectDojo. He will be presenting remotely and the room works well for this format. Greg is a long time member of OWASP and has held several different leadership positions. You can find his bio on the official OWASP users page:
