My Presentation at the Minnesota Government Information Technology Symposium

I had a great time last Wednesday speaking at the Minnesota Government Information Technology Symposium in St. Paul. I'm really glad they gave me the opportunity to speak about Application Security. I was very pleased with the turn out. I believe I had about 70-75 people in attendance.

My presentation ran about 2 hours. We covered a wide range of basic security topics:

  • Assets, vulnerabilities, threats, and counter measures
  • SQL Injection
  • Cross-Site Scripting(XSS)
  • Request Forgeries
  • Password Security

For those that missed it, I am attaching my slides to this post.

I want to thank the organizers of the event for putting this on and allowing me to speak. I got a lot out of the symposium and enjoyed most of the presentations I attended. It also helped open my eyes, more, to a problem that I think is being overlooked in much of web development world. Accessibility. You can expect some more blog posts from me in the future about accessibility.

todd sharp's Gravatar By the way, those are some fantastic images for your slides. I love the security cam ones and the sleeping guard in particular. Priceless!
