This talk discusses how IT professionals can go about
learning what they need to know to prevent the most significant
emerging data security vulnerabilities, and the impact these
vulnerabilities are having on electronic commerce. In this talk,
I will review how attacks such as XSRF (Cross-Site-Request-Forgery)
and SQL Injection work, and how to properly defend against them.
Then, I will present some industry-wide statistics on software
security vulnerabilities reported to various databases, and
emerging trends in the field of software security. Finally, it will
discuss the current state of security education, and provide
pointers to certification programs, books, and
organizations where you can learn more.
