Let’s talk Security

Abstract

Are you one of the growing startup or want to improve your application security? Yes, you heard it right, after this talk, you should be aware of the best practices to follow for tightening the security of your web applications.

It’s important to understand a little better about why we sometimes need to slow down feature development and clean up a bit.

We’ll have a hands-on demo with a vulnerable Node.js web application, and step by step discussion about the impact and necessary steps to mitigate them. Should be the most interesting part since you’ll see how attacker thinks to break in and how we (dev) should always try to be a step ahead of them and protect our app.
