Limited Capacity seats available

When developing a secure web application, it is critical that developers know the vulnerabilities and countermeasures that must be addressed. Join us as we discuss the most common attack vectors for web applications including Click-Jacking, Cross-Site Scripting, Script and SQL Injection, Man-In-The-Middle, and Spoofing. We’ll walk through basic best practices, discuss tools to guard against the different types of attacks, and review application architecture, code and settings that should be implemented to secure a web application.

Note: The specific coding and setting changes demonstrated will be done in a PHP application on a standard Linux, Apache, MySQL system, and an ASP.NET application written in C# code, running on IIS.
