I'm excited to announce that August Detlefsen and I have had our talk "Customizing Burp Suite & Getting the Most out of Burp Extensions" selected for presentation at AppSec USA in San Francisco this September. Built on our experiences developing Burp plugins to address use cases not natively handled by Burp or to improve workflow, come find out what has worked for us and how you can make Burp work harder for you. AppSec Consulting will also have a table at the career fair on the afternoon of the first day of the conference, feel free to come by and say hello. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Monika Morrow is a Senior Security Consultant at AppSec Consulting. Monika is an expert in black-box and white-box mobile and web application penetration testing and helped develop AppSec Consulting’s mobile testing mythology. She utilizes manual techniques and automated scanning tools such as Burp Professional, AppScan Standard Edition, Qualys, and Nessus. When these tools don’t work, she is often able to write a Burp extension to deal with the unusual behavior causing the problem. Noticing a lack of available reference material for writing Burp extensions Monika developed and delivered a talk at BayThreat 4, “So You Want to Build A Burp Plugin?” to share this knowledge with the community. Monika also volunteers her time to local STEM events such as HacKid and local career days.

Monika received her Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from California State University, Chico. After college Monika worked for six years as a C++ software developer at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division – China Lake for the Department of the Navy. After moving to San Jose, prior to joining AppSec Consulting, she added Java , C#, and Objective C programming to her skill set and started the development of an iOS application. Since joining AppSec Consulting Monika has transitioned her skills to security testing where she has spent four years black-box and white-box testing Web and Mobile applications in addition to performing security training and developing specialized testing tools.

When not researching new security technologies or actively assessing corporate security, Monika enjoys spending time with family and friends, volunteering, driving unique cars, photography, biking, yo-yoing, and gymnastics.
