Secure Coding for Developers

Date: Tuesday, September 11, 2018
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: Madison Public Library, 201 W Mifflin St, Bubbler Room (first floor)

First there were some stolen credit card numbers, then thousands and now millions of them have been stolen from security breaches. That is just the tip of the iceberg of the data theft that has happened. Did you know that Application Security starts with secure code, a language-agnostic practice to develop software that guards against security vulnerabilities? In this talk, we will be discussing Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)’s top security issues that developers need to incorporate in their development practices. Some examples of security vulnerabilities in code include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and insecure direct object references.
