As the number of security incidents increases and more and more world wide organizations are being compromised, it is required to stop and analyze what is wrong with the way we are developing applications. In this Webinar we will discuss the current affairs of Web application security and how we can use open sourced guidances/tools to write secure code.
The main goal of this Webinar is to create an awareness ecosystem where software engineers can figure out how to write secure applications,so they can bring this concerns to their development team within organizations. With an educative stand point we will discuss how to do things better and how to collaborate as a community member to create a safer world.
