Our meetup (venue to be announced) on Web Application Security Related Vulnerabilities is less than a month away! Also, if you're in the Boulder area tomorrow, check out the 9th stop of the Application Developers Alliance's free Privacy Summit Series.
Our third meetup: web application security related vulnerabilities
The top web vulnerabilities of 2011 involved Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Information Leakage, Content Spoofing, Insufficient Authorization, SQL Injection, and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaws. We will cover these different types of vulnerabilities; what they mean, how they work and how you can test your websites to see if they are vulnerable. The meetup will be presented by Chris Baril, who holds a Computer Science B.S. degree from the University of British Columbia and has been developing websites since the late 90s.

No plans tomorrow afternoon? Check out the FREE Privacy Summit Series in Boulder
WHAT: Happy Hour and Open Discussion – How are privacy policies going to impact developers’ work? What can you do influence the debate? No charge, but you must register to reserve a spot – REGISTER NOW
WHO: Leading the discussion -- Tim Sparapani, Sr. Advisor for Policy and Law, Application Developers Alliance; Julie Brill, FTC Commissioner; Jason Haislmaier, Partner, Bryan Cave HRO; Colin O’Malley, Chief Strategy Officer, Evidon; and Scott Peppet, Associate Professor of Law, University of Colorado at Boulder.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 2nd – 4:00-6:30pm
WHERE: Silicon Flatirons - University of Colorado, Wolf Law Building, 2450 Kittredge Loop Road, Boulder, CO 80309
WHY: Developers are in the crosshairs of a nationwide explosion of lawmaking. Legislators and regulators are making decisions about software privacy that will make your work more difficult, and this is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Anyone who writes software — no matter the language or platform — must understand the issues and take the lead in the discussion to ensure privacy protections are effective but do not impede growth in the business of creating software.
That’s why we’re bringing the privacy conversation to developers in cities across the U.S. The series will include conversations guided by discussion leaders to help developers better understand the changing privacy landscape and give them a voice in the dialogue. This isn’t a heavy event, it’s a conversation led by and for developers which is why we’re also providing a fully stocked happy hour. Because we know even the biggest challenges can be solved over a few beers (just not too many). REGISTER NOW
