Malicious Code Injection Workshop
SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS) and other injection attacks
techniques have become pervasive on the web. This hands-on workshop takes
an in-depth look at common methods used to exploit web applications.
Attendees will learn step-by-step techniques used by attackers allowing them
to better understand how web applications are exploited. Each attack method
is followed up with a discussion about effective countermeasures to defend
against such attacks.
This interactive workshop includes a victim web application that contains
built-in vulnerabilities. Attendees can bring their own laptop computers
and participate in hands-on lab sessions. The objective of this workshop is
to learn secure development practices used to harden the security of
applications. Attendee participation is encouraged and door prizes will be
awarded at random.

Panel Discussion: "Privacy, Security and Breaches, Oh My!"
This panel discussion will review the current state of information privacy
and the security of web applications. Security breaches are occurring at an
alarming rate and consumers are loosing faith. What, if anything can be
done to restore confidence in e-commerce?
What can we learn from events at Card Systems are more recently Monster.com?
What can be done to ensure your company is not the next victim of a class
action and/or hackers and data thieves? Join an all-star panel of
Information Privacy and Data Security professionals to better understand
what's at stake and how to stay out of the headlines.
