Website Security - from a web developer to a web developer - Fran Hoey

As day in day out website developers we hear terms like Password Hashing, SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting. We Google them, we read a blog page or two and we tell ourselves we know enough.

I was the same, until a year or two ago.

This talk is what I have learned, and why its crucial we better understand the risks, the type of attacks our users face while on our websites and what we must do to make our corner of the internet a safer place.

    Fantastic talk Fran, I actually understood parts! (massive newb)

    Great talk, really enjoyed it. Thanks Fran. As Danny said, maybe too much (scary!) information.
    Checked out the haveibeenpwned site and thankfully got a clean bill of health - although I guess you probably need to re-check regularly!

    Any chance of grabbing your presentation or at least the links on the last slide?

  • Danny

    First class yet worryingly informative

    December 4, 2013

  • Rick M.

    Only a 50% chance I can make it tomorrow, so have updated my RSVP.

    December 3, 2013

    • Fran H.

      Thank you, although we currently have 1 space if find you can make it!

  • Rob D.

    Happy to bring my HD camcorder along.

    December 3, 2013

    • Fran H.

      .... nah, it's fine

      December 3, 2013

  • Nick

    I'm not sure I can make it on Weds so I've changed my RSVP - seemed a bit mean holding a space if I'm not 100%.

    December 2, 2013

    • Fran H.

      Thanks Nick, it wouldn't suprise me if there are a few spaces in the end, there's only 1 on the wait list now

      December 2, 2013

    • Fran H.

      Nick, if you are able to make it we have space

    I'll be unable to attend, sorry. Hope someone can use my place.

    December 2, 2013

  • Andy W.

    I'm unable to attend so I've updated my RSVP.

    December 2, 2013

  • Craig P.

    Sadly, I'll no longer be able to attend next Wednesday. I've updated my RSVP status and "released" my place as requested.

      Thank you Craig

      November 29, 2013

    • Fran H.

      No plan of videoing it! Not sure I could. If I ever do it again (possibly at another group) I'll let you know

      December 2, 2013

  • Neal C.

    Yes would very much like to come as well, if anyone is not going please let us know

    November 29, 2013

  • James M.

    Hi. I missed the last meetup. If anyone decides not to come can they please select the No Going option as im on the waiting list. Looks a really interesting talk. Thanks.

    this looks like it could prove pretty useful as I've had my fair share of sites getting hacked in the past! Not so much anymore after reading up on a few things, but would be good to get clued up on security a bit further nonetheless

    Looking forward to attending.
