May 2013 - Top Ten Web Defences (Jim Manico)


We cannot “firewall” or “patch” our way to secure websites. In the past, security professionals thought firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), patching, and privacy policies were enough. Today, however, these methods are outdated and ineffective, as attacks on prominent, well-protected websites are occurring every day. Website developers must learn to code in a secure fashion to have any chance of providing organizations with proper defenses in the current threat-scape. The session will provide specific tips and guidelines to make website code both low risk and less vulnerable.




Jim Manico is the VP of Security Architecture for WhiteHatSecurity, a web security firm. He authors and delivers developer security awareness training for WhiteHat Security and has a backgroundas a software developer and architect. Jim is also a global board memberfor the OWASP foundation. He manages and participates in several OWASPprojects, including the OWASP cheat sheet series and the OWASP podcastseries.

    Great presentation, lots of technical fun. Manico obviously loves his subject matter and provides an energetic, audience-involved presentation sprinkled with just enough fun anecdotes. We really enjoyed the evening; thank you very much to both the host and the presenter. Next time, an expected run time on the meetup would be nice... We would have stayed after longer had we not parked in 2hr parking.

    Just wanted to thank our board member and passionate global steward of the OWASP name, Jim Manico, for trekking out to ATL, battling the insanity of our traffic, and delivering a high protein dose of cage-free, no BS, and high quality secure coding content. As mentioned before in today's meeting, Jim work's tirelessly and globally promoting multiple OWASP efforts. For this I simply wanted to thank him on behalf of the OWASP ATL chapter, wish him a safe return out West and encourage all of you to download the slide deck from tonight's presentation on our chapter meetup page ( and navigating to the Files option under the generic group page. Let me know if you do not find it.

    I suggest you also stay up to date with Jim's talks, whereabouts worldwide by following him on Twitter using his handle, @manicode. On behalf of ATL, mahalo Jim! (context: he lives in Hawaii)
