Getting Started with Web Application Security

  • Thursday, 11 Feb 2016 1:00PM EST (11 Feb 2016 18:00 UTC)
  • Speakers: Gregory Leonard, Joseph Feiman

Chances are, at any given moment, your organization's web applications are under attack (if not already exploited). Attackers see web applications as the front door: just one vulnerability allows them entry - perhaps to the database supporting the web application or maybe to your business partners, such as the payment processing vendor supporting your application.

In this webcast, learn why Cross Site Scripting, SQL Injection, Input Validation and other common vulnerabilities continue to plague web applications. Speakers will discuss what types of web apps are most targeted (such as Java and .NET, according to the 2015 SANS Application Security Survey), why these types of applications are targeted, and what the common outcomes of these types of breaches are.

Presenters will also provide educational and technical resources to help security operations teams proactively manage their web applications by finding and reducing vulnerabilities - before attackers can take advantage of them.
