Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
In his keynote address to the Hacker Halted audience, Jeremiah Grossman will take an in-depth look at the headline making, yet everyday reality of website compromises. Whether the targets are in the government, military, retail, or banks no longer matters– everyone with an online presence can be on the receiving-end of a web attack. Often used, but commonly overlooked, techniques such as SQL Injection, PHP File Include, and Cross-Site Scripting, among others, will be the focus of this keynote address.
“There is great deal of Web application security presentations out there these days, which is a good thing considering the threat landscape. However the immensity of the problem and the lack of scalability in commonly preached solutions hold many organizations back,” says Mr. Grossman when asked why people should attend the Conference and his presentation, “Starting right now, this is the time we need to look at the big picture and share new ideas for overcoming 15 years of shoddy Web code.”
In comparison to other presentations of this nature, “Strategies for Web Application Security at Scale” will have “ideas, recommendations, and concepts that really do work – at scale. No advocating of tag lines that only sound good, which have no data to support them. We’ve heard enough of that and it’s time to elevate out thinking.” As someone who is familiar with the Hacker Halted audience, Mr. Grossman feels it is a group of experienced professionals who “are dissatisfied with the current state of InfoSec. They really want to know what’s really going on out there, in the dark corners of the Internet.” Going on, he added that attendees are interested in “exploring new ideas on how to make substantial improvements.”
Jeremiah Grossman is only one of the stellar speakers in the Hacker Halted lineup.
