Vulnerabilities in Modern Web Applications
We are more likely to implement new web applications in the future and less client based solutions.

Vendors have perfected software as a service (SAAS) models which are accelerating the convenience of these development strategies. Join us to explore web-based applications, their risks, and possible mitigating controls.

In banking today, we are leveraging more and more web application systems to create internal efficiencies, deliver new products and services to customers and expand our capabilities as an organization. Web applications are convenient and flexible, but introduce new risks which we saw with vulnerabilities like Heartbleed and Bashbug. This discussion will provide tools and techniques to help evaluate the security of your organization’s website. As many modern web applications interact with a variety of third-party services, the discussion will also explore how data moves through a web application and, more importantly, how it leaves. Special attention will be paid to the interaction of data with third-party services and the impact it has on the security of the data the system is handling.


The following topics will be addressed:

  • How modern web applications work and common weak points are in their security
  • Interaction with third-party services
  • Protective measures individuals can take to secure their online presence


IT managers, network administrators, IT specialists and security officers.
