Secure Coding – Best Practices (also for non-developers!)
With the amount of (attempted) security breaches and high-paced agile sprint cycles, securing your software from day 1 is a major cost-saver. The recording of the webinar 'Secure Coding - Best Practices (also for non-developers!)' on February 27th 2019, presented by Michael Kubiaczyk is now available on our YouTube Channel.
We hope that you enjoyed the webinar and it was useful to understand and know important best practices and security concepts for secure coding. Do you want to dive deeper into the code and expand your secure programming skills? Our interactive secure programming training course is planned for 18 April 2019 and open to join. Reserve your seat now.
Look out for details of our next webinars.
About the webinar
In this webinar, we will discuss the basics of how an HTTP client (a browser, phone, web-application, or otherwise) communicates over the internet with a website, and highlight the components which can be used by attackers to target either the website or the user.
This webinar will cover some of the basic technologies which make the internet work, covering basic HTTP request and response formats, how cookies work, and the types of information which are sent and received over the internet. We will then discuss (with examples) some of the potential vulnerabilities that can exploit these technologies - such as Cross Site Scripting, SQL Injection, and others. Various techniques are available to protect users and websites from attack, yet there are still vulnerable websites - we present reasons why such vulnerabilities persist, and introduce some concepts which can be used when designing or developing applications to reduce the chance of vulnerabilities in the finished product.
Who should attend?
This webinar is suitable for all participants. It will discuss some concepts which may be familiar to developers and other technical administrators, but will introduce these concepts in a way that can be understood by those with minimal understanding of Internet-related technology.
