Hacking 101: Intro to AppSec

Hacking 101: Intro to AppSec with Blake Lohn-Wiley

This 101 gives attendees a hands-on experience with both attack and defense in an application environment. Application Security (AppSec) is the use of software, hardware and procedural methods to combat vulnerabilities and protect critical data from external threats. Effective AppSec hinges upon an organization’s ability to examine and plug the “holes” that are present in the software used to run their business.
