How Hacking Changed My Perspective on Building Applications

Security is at the top of everyone's mind, and with all the breaches, it should be. Unfortunately, as developers, we are not exposed to how security fails in real life applications. That is about to change. In this session, we will discuss some of my experiences as a security consultant and how they relate to insufficient security controls. This is not a roast of applications. It is an opportunity to see how a hacker looks at an application to identify vulnerabilities and learn how to better our own applications.
