I will be presenting to the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group Tomorrow

As many of you know, the Amazing Charlie Arehart, as one of his many contributions to the CFML Community, arranges and hosts the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group. The Online ColdFusion Meetup Group gets together (usually on Thursdays) for one or two online presentations. The topics are usually related to ColdFusion/CFML, Web Development, and just about anything else that can be related back to ColdFusion/CFML development. They also range in difficulty level from beginner to advanced.

One of the best parts about what Charlie does is that he posts recordings of the presentations so that we can go back and watch presentations that we missed.

You can find a complete list of 2008's topics (and recordings) here

Tomorrow (January 22nd, 2009), I will be presenting to the group on Application Security:

Application Security: Beyond SQL Injection
Surely there is more to this application security stuff than SQL injection. We've put in our so are we secure now? We are going to talk about some of the other threats against our applications. Things like:

  • Request Forgeries
  • Password Security
  • Cookies
  • Session Management

SQL Injection is only the tip of the security iceberg. We need to be prepared for much more. As hackers become more sophisticated, so must we.

One thing I can promise about this presentation is that I will NOT be talking about SQL injection. So if you are as sick of hearing about <cfqueryparam> as I am, then you needn't fear. I have some slides about Cross-Site scripting, but since Scott Stroz just discussed that a few weeks ago, I will only cover it if there is time.

I am really looking forward to this. I think it will be a lot of fun.

And thank you to Charlie Arehart for doing this week-after-week. Your persistence benefits us all.
