Become a security ninja
Insecure software undermines our infrastructure and puts our organizations at risk. This hands-on workshop will feature real-world hacking exercises that correspond to each of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) top 10 vulnerabilities, helping to hone your skills as a security ninja!
Whether you’re a new developer, a designer who is beginning to experiment with programming, or a seasoned developer looking for a refresher, join us as we discuss why attacks happen, go over the most common vulnerabilities and explore techniques you can use to code defensively.
This session is presented in partnership with the Higher Education Web Professionals Association.
