Software Security and Ethical Hacking for Developers

* **Note: This event will be held in-person. There will also be a virtual option for those that can not make it in-person. Please choose your ticket accordingly when registering. The link to join virtually will be sent out closer to the event date.

This talk will highlight and discuss some common vulnerabilities in software security that cause most cyber-attacks today and cannot be detected and prevented by conventional cybersecurity mechanisms. We will also present a teaching and training approach with hands-on hacking exercises for future software developers. The hacking exercises aim to promote awareness of software vulnerabilities and their consequences so that developers can avoid them in the development phase by applying secure programming techniques.
