In this session, Sonya will:

  • Present an overview of AI in software development and common AI security risks;
  • Use GenAI tools to build a coffee shop demo app and exploit AI-generated vulnerabilities, including SQL injection, cross-site scripting, directory traversal and more;
  • Give you some effective strategies to mitigate and fix the AI-generated vulnerabilities.
