The year was 2004. I was on stage at the yearly Java One conference in the Moscone Center in San Francisco. My friends, Karthik and Selva, and I were terrified as we looked out at the full room of over 1,000 attendees there to watch our talk on “You are Hacked—Ten Secrets to Secure Your Enterprise Java Web Applications.” 

We didn’t realize there was an overflow room with another 500 folks watching. The good news is when our talk started, the spotlights were so bright we couldn’t really see anything other than bright lights, so we were all able to relax and give a good talk. Application security was obviously a hot topic back then as it is today.
