Workshop: Web security for startups – Go hack yourself or someone else will

Attackers frequently target vulnerabilities, then find websites that have them – they are not always looking to hack specific companies. This talk will show you what everyday security mistakes developers usually make and how you can use automation to stay on top of security. We will also include a short Detectify demo and hold a Q&A session about the tool, web security and the hacker community. Join us to find out how security can be fun, easy and automated – so that you do not need to spend all your time worrying about it.

Date and time: September 21, 11.30-13.00
