On February 3, 2004, I will be speaking to the Boston C# Users Group in Waltham, MA (at the Microsoft offices) on one of my favorite topics: Secure Coding: Best Practices. Essentially, it is an extension of the topic I mentioned in this post (Part 1).
Here is a summary of what I will be talking about:
Security is important to nearly every company, but security can never be an add-on to an existing product. Developers need to be aware of common security threats, and they need to follow best practices for developing secure code. This presentation will introduce security topics such as checking data input, buffer overruns, Cross-Site Scripting, SQL injection, and the Rule of Least Privilege. The best techniques for secure coding will also be demonstrated.
If you are in the area, stop by and say hello.
