White Hat Academy presents a virtual presentation and interactive hands-on lab covering common web application vulnerabilities and how to guard against them. Participants will be able to practice exploiting web apps using injection, cross-site scripting, and other common attack vectors. Participants will then rewrite the sample code to harden their apps from attack and test whether their fixes are successful.

This virtual event will happen on YouTube Live. To get the most out of this session, you should already have some basic experience with an object-oriented programming language; examples will mostly use Python code.
