    Cyber Resilience, TARA and Red Teaming

    Cyber risk isn't new, but the stakes grow higher every day. An incident is no longer likely to be an isolated event, but a sustained and persistent campaign. There is no single solution that will offer protection from an attack, but a Cyber Resilience strategy can provide a multi-layered approach that encompasses people, processes and technology. Pete will talk about eliminating the gap between IT and the business to present a united front against threats. This is a paradigm shift that uses security intelligence to guide decisions and support agility.

  • Web application security, why so hard? Wed 25th Apr 15:00 - 15:50

    Web application security, why so hard?

    Due to their large and complex attack surface and the difficulty in ensuring they are secure, web applications continue to be a prime target in attacks. All it takes is a flaw in the application itself, its framework, the web server or proxy server configuration, or even some third-party component (e.g. such as a JavaScript library that is embedded on each web page) to lead to full compromise of a host or network.

    In this session we will talk both generally about the trends in web application security and look at specific examples of how key vulnerabilities arise (e.g. discussing how, without adequate sanitisation, tainted user input can reach dangerous functions within some layer of the system), paying particular attention to those more subtle cases that usually go under the radar, such as within HTML5 applications.
