Please join Percona’s Information Security Architect, David Bubsy, as he presents his talk Web Application Security – Why You Should Review Yours on March 14th, 2019 at 6:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4).
In this talk, we take a look at the whole stack and I don’t just mean LAMP.
We’ll cover what an attack surface is and some areas you may look to in order to ensure that you can reduce it.
For instance, what’s an attack surface?
Acronym Hell, what do they mean?
Vulnerability Naming, is this media naming stupidity or driving the message home?
Detection, Prevention and avoiding the boy who cried wolf are some further examples.
Additionally, we’ll cover emerging technologies to keep an eye on or even implement yourself to help improve your security posture.
There will also be a live compromise demo (or backup video if something fails) that covers compromising a PCI compliant network structure to reach the database system. Through this compromise you can ultimately exploit multiple failures to gain bash shell access over the MySQL protocol.
