28 Feb 2018

SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, announced the agenda for SANS Northern Virginia Reston Spring 2018 taking place May 20-25. The event offers top-notch training from some of the best InfoSec instructors in the industry. Dr. Johannes Ullrich, Director of the SANS Internet Storm Center will teach DEV522: Defending Web Applications Security Essentials. He will also give an evening talk on Nation State Level Honeypotting: Emulating Vulnerable Web Applications at Scale.

According to Dr. Ullrich (@johullrich), "Creating and protecting successful web applications is a balancing act. Our honeypot projects have given us unique insight into the ubiquity and nature of the attacks these applications are exposed to, along with proof that security basics still matter. Join me in Reston where I will share how to get the basics right - input validation, output encoding, authentication and access control. System administrators, auditors and others in charge of protecting web applications will see great value in the DEV522 course, in addition to developers."
