Web Security for Newcomers: how to avoid getting hacked as a software developer
|Countdown link||Open timer|
At first, I will give a short overview of web security fundamentals and explain the OWASP Top Ten. Then, we will discuss some prepared source code examples (Python-Backend) of common attacks and how to prevent them. We will focus on XSS (persistent, non-persistent, DOM) and SQL-Injection, but we will also briefly address Phishing, DDOS, and CSRF. Don't worry if you are not familiar with these abbreviations yet; I will explain them in the talk.

I am professionally working in software engineering since 2011, both as an engineer and manager for both national (Germany) and international companies. I wrote my first line of code around 2006. In the last few years, I have been working as a freelance consultant. I am also a lecturer at universities for software engineering, testing, architecture, and web security.
