Summary of event:

Creating a quality web application is hard. It’s hard to gain customers, it’s hard to build your reputation and it’s hard to keep the costs low. Nevertheless, security is often an afterthought. However… Have you considered the cost of fixing security issues later? What about the reputational damage of a security breach? Are you worried about your customers’ data? We will talk about good security coding practices for web applications and how to apply them early on, using some real world examples. We will also help you to think about your website’s vulnerabilities from the view of a hacker.
