How does a buffer overrun work? What can I do to protect myself from SQL Injection? How do hackers exploit vulnerabilities? Please join Microsoft and Compuware for a comprehensive look at the answers to these questions.
We will provide guidance on how to identify common secure coding issues, and show you how to mitigate the risk from these issues to ensure that your application's security begins in development, and that you're delivering the most secure application possible to your organization and customers.
This is going to be an awesome event ... not only will we show how applications get hacked, but Brian Cooper will demonstrate Compuware's excellent tool for identifying potential vulnerabilities in applications before they go out the door to be attacked by the bad guys!

A recent study notes that 75 percent of all web attacks happen at the application layer. This number is alarming, seeing as though most security solutions are focused on checking and controlling security issues after applications are in production. Little is done to build security into applications from the start, which will reduce cost and improve code quality.Topics will include overall best practices for writing secure code, identifying and ranking threats to your application and including security into the software development lifecycle. While vulnerabilities we will discuss are not platform-specific, the mitigation techniques discussed and demonstrated will be specific to the .NET Framework and Visual Studio 2005 tools.In this seminar we will provide guidance on how to identify common secure coding issues, show you how to mitigate the risk from these issues to ensure that your application's security begins in development and that you're delivering the most secure application possible to your organization and customers. You will also learn about common security vulnerabilities within applications and the development techniques to correct them.Session TopicsCommon Application Security Vulnerabilities
