Let's take a look at some recent security events and the vulnerabilities causing them. As a developer you have the power and the responsibility to thwart such attacks. We'll help you connect the dots behind the scenes and show you some techniques to defend your services.

This presentation is delivered by Daniel Szpisjak, an application security engineer with a strong development background. He believes developers are the most powerful line of defense against attackers; therefore his main effort is spreading security knowledge among them. Daniel claims, security is about being able to make smart tradeoffs, and for that, you need to have a good amount of technical expertise and an adequately developed security mindset. His mission is to guide software engineers, like you, in the field of IT security.

As a developer, you should think of him as a good friend, who has been around for a while and knows the clever little tricks you need to stay out of trouble. He creates easily consumable 'security drops' on his blog at https://www.securitydrops.com.
