Seminar 01A - Web Application Security
PLEASE NOTE: Separate registration and fee is required to attend this seminar.
Web-based applications represent a growing threat for IT organizations. Not only are software vendors turning to the browser as the interface of choice, but many software offerings exist online only from ASPs. The consumer market is also being flooded with web-enabled devices that are designed to sync with Internet-based services. As the browser becomes the new desktop and the Internet becomes the new LAN, how will security professionals analyze, recognize, understand, and address the many security issues that attend this dynamic environment? In this seminar, we will explore the full landscape of the "web application" and examine the security risks affiliated with the associated technologies through a demonstration-oriented process, so you can see how to assess a web application and understand how vulnerable applications are exploited. Finally, we'll look at mitigating solutions, strategies, and activities that you can implement to reduce the amount of risk associated with our web-enabled world.
