"Intentional Collisions" - Hack-in-Action: Why it's Essential to Secure your Web & Mobile Applications

Tuesday, November 15 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pm • Organized By Sprint Accelerator
210 W 19th Terrace, Kansas City, Missouri 64108


It's time for another Intentional Collisions and this time we will be taking a deep dive into hacking – of both mobile and web applications.

What is the Intentional Collisions program?  Every month or so Sprint Accelerator co-organizes a themed coworking day with a theme sponsor (champion); bringing together people interested in similar subjects and/or working towards common goals.  To learn more about the overall program or submit an idea for a theme, please visit our Programs page.  With a technical audience, we'll delve into the topic of Web & Mobile Application Security.  The space will be open 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM with a live demo of a hack-in-action – exposing the vulnerabilities and interconnectedness of software and IT systems we all use and rely upon.

The space will be open to attendees 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Join us for a talk at 1PM led by:

Jeff Beard-Shouse, Cyber Security Evangelist and Security Consultant, Security PS

"Looking at the Big Picture: Demonstrating the Interconnectedness of Software and IT Systems" - Jeff will show the implications of some security vulnerabilities in web & mobile apps. These vulnerabilities are often the entry point for hackers taking over corporate networks. 

The space will be open to attendees 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM

11:30 AM - Sprint Accelerator space opens to attendees to work and meet one another

1:00 PM - Presentation and Live Demo Hack by Jeff Beard-Shouse

3:30 PM - Sprint Accelerator space closes to attendees, so swap info and say your goodbyes!

The upstairs space will be open from 11:30am-3:30pm for you to work in an open and collaborative space (individually or with your team), while hearing what others are working on in web/mobile app security.  

This event is for you if:

  • You work in the IT security and/or privacy space

  • You are a developer, manager or part of the overall IT staff of your organization
