Our session on Thursday Oct 24 at 12pm (US ET) will be "Approaches to more secure ColdFusion code, with Pete Freitag".
(Topic description and speaker bio below.)
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
Security is a topic we as developers love to ignore as much as possible, but as the number of attacks increase year over year we need to grab hold of the security in our apps. It can be difficult to secure large or legacy codebases, we'll look at some practical approaches to getting in there and making progress. We'll also review some of the top vulnerabilities to watch out for, which also provide a good starting point.
