Session 1
Title: Coding For Security
Facilitator: Ezra Jivan

Hacks and password leaks are becoming more and more commonly reported in our current age. By looking at OWASP, KING IV, PCI-DSS 3.2, POPI and GDPR, we will look at the basics of each of these recommendations and standards. We then run through a few real world examples in order to make us aware of how to follow good practices when engineering software.


Session 2
