Presentation Abstract: How to Hack Web Applications for Profit (And How to Prevent Yours From Being Hacked)

The constant barrage of breaches that we’ve seen over the past several years have made two things very clear—every organization is at risk and every web application is a target. As a security professional, it does not matter whether breaches are brought about by hacktivists such as LulzSec or Anonymous, the acts of criminally minded hackers or nation state sponsored attacks, the consequences of vulnerable web applications can wreak havoc on your company. Attackers are determined, inventive and patient, while your organization’s application portfolio is dynamic, vulnerable and always connected to the Internet. This presentation will discuss why web applications are vulnerable, why they’re under attack, and provide an overview of the most common vulnerabilities found in web applications. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how web applications are attacked, the most common vulnerabilities found in web applications, and how to prevent these vulnerabilities from being identified and exploited in your web applications.
