Are you an application developer? You might have been feeling insecure recently. If you want to create more secure software but don’t know where to start, this is the talk for you.

Rosalie and Jack are application developers who have recently been tasked with diving into the scary world of information security. Privilege escalation, buffer overflows, cross site scripting and SQL injection can be complicated and intimidating topics! This presentation will break down the fundamentals of information security from the perspective of the professional application developer. While it may seem like you can’t afford to spend time worrying about security, we believe that with the recent explosion of major vulnerability disclosures, you can’t afford not to.
