How Cybercriminals Steal Money

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Web Technologies, Databases, Security, Development on February 04, 2009

Attend this session and learn how you can prevent today's most significant data security vulnerabilities—the kind that leave businesses open to fraud that ranges from capturing tens of millions of credit card numbers to stealing money from bank accounts to constructing next-generation botnets. We'll review how cross-site request forgery, cross-site script inclusion and SQL injection attacks work and discuss their impact on Web 2.0, AJAX, mashup and social networking applications. We'll present industry-wide statistics on security vulnerabilities, cover emerging security trends and discuss the current state of security education. Then we'll tell you how to defend against security attacks and how to modify your software development process to achieve security, and we'll recommend certification programs, books and organizations that can help you secure your applications.
