Oct 2012 Meetup - Security Testing Techiques

Testing is the phase of development that is often reduced due to deadlines, but it is also an important line of defense we can use to secure our applications. This talk exposes the audience to useful open source testing tools that will look for commonly found vulnerabilities. Also discussed are techniques that can be used to find sensitive data stored on the client (no matter if the app is web, client/server, or mainframe) and some easy tests that can be used to may expose some OWASP Top Ten vulnerabilities.


In this prezo, you will learn the following key items:

· Useful automated tools

· Looking for sensitive data on the client

· Easy tests for finding OWASP Top Ten vulnerabilities

      Hey Scott, You can normally pull a wire from the switch in the room and get internet access. But never mind if there are no slides.
