Web Application Security Bootcamp

Many people think that certain server web languages are inherently insecure, since security vulnerabilities in applications driven by these languages are reported on a regular basis. However the actual problem is not the language, but insecure code written in it. This training provides you with best practices to write code that is as secure as possible. You will see various attacks and of course countermeasures. And although different languages offer different security features, a common understanding of standard attacks and security vulnerabilities is a must to write secure web applications — in any language. Ajax applications are especially endangered and require special precautions. A must-see training for any web developers who want to secure their applications on the code level.
