About this event

Secure programming practices to prevent common mistakes such as XSS, SQL injection or buffer overflows are well known and have increasingly become part of developer education. However, it takes much more to build and run secure applications. This session will give an insight into practical challenges of building applications ready to meet today’s threat landscape, how to keep up with challenges like cloud computing, IoT and what skills are required from security experts.
