Writing Secure Code

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.

Discussion on Application Security in the Age of Open Source
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Open source software is the foundation for application development worldwide, comprising 80-90% of the code in today’s applications.  It reduces development costs, speeds time to market and accelerates innovation which is driving adoption, but the explosion in open source use has not been accompanied by effective security and management practices.

A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as severe.   

Join Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger for a discussion of best practices in open source security and management to reduce application security risk. You’ll learn:

  • Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can’t be made
  • Ways to assess the risk associated with a discovered open source vulnerability
  • Scalable approaches to designing application testing for different agile-development pipelines

Stopping Ransomware in its Tracks
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

RansomWare is everywhere and quickly spreading through IT environments. Join us for an informative look at how to prevent ransomware from attacking your network.

The Wanna Cry ransomware attack that crippled hundreds of thousands of IT systems has made the threat of ransomware front-page news around the globe. This news should be especially daunting as research shows that Small to Medium Businesses and Distributed Enterprises suffer from a greater frequency of successful ransomware attacks than large Enterprise organizations. With the stakes – and costs – of a ransomware attack higher than ever, what can small and midsize businesses do to protect themselves?

Join Network Security Leader WatchGuard for an in-depth look at the best tactics for ransomware defense.

Highlights include:
• See ransomware in the wild
• Watch a live ransomware hack
• Learn why Threat Detection & Response is a must for today’s threat landscape
• Experience the ultimate Ransomware prevention solution, powered by Incident Correlation
