Understanding Online Security
From Anthem to Ashley Madison, from the FBI to the IRS the last couple years have been significant in terms of quantity and impact of security breaches.
The need for securing our information systems has never been more clear. In 2016 passwords were stolen at a rate of 95/second with the cost of an average breach around $4 million. The global cost of data breaches is expected to exceed $2 trillion within the next two years.
In this presentation common attacks will be described along with mitigation techniques. You will leave with an introductory vocabulary in software security, as well as tips and tools you can use to protect yourself (and your business) online.
PrerequisitesThis talk is geared towards those with little to no real understanding of software security concepts and vocabulary. While suitable for programmers wanting to learn how to secure their own software, this presentation is very approachable for those with less technical expertise.
