Though it is often thought that breaches occur through complicated techniques, the vast majority of website breaches and application vulnerabilities are the result of relatively simple attacks on known weaknesses in web application functionality.

In this Introduction to Web Application Vulnerability talk, Tom Pieragastini will discuss some of these vulnerabilities and some simple ways that developers can test their own applications and prevent some of these common vectors of attack from leading to a breach.

Tom Pieragastini has been working in information security professionally for only a short time, but has engaged in years of research on vulnerabilities and security.  He has been a participant and security consultant on projects at Cleveland GiveCamp 2015, the Fix216 Hackathon and other events in the Greater Cleveland area.
