Think like a hacker: process, code, and hands-on security training at DrupalCon Munich

Jul 24 2012

Security! You know you need to be considering it and keeping your site secure, but you may not be so confident about what steps to take, or how to review modules to judge their security (or fix it). This class can help you solve that.

Whether you’re a web security expert learning Drupal or just someone who knows Drupal and needs to learn security, this class is the perfect solution to get the knowledge you need quickly.

This pre-conference training session on August 20 is the place to be.

While Drupal itself is generally well respected as a secure system, there are mistakes you can make in building your site, choosing modules, and writing a custom theme that can easily introduce vulnerabilities. Understanding how to build secure web sites can make a huge difference not only for the integrity of your sites, but for the confidence of your clients, as well.

There is no better way to tackle the security beast than with the help of Acquia’s experts Greg Knaddison and Ben Jeavons - members of Acquia's Professional Services and Engineering team.

More specifically, the course will cover:

  • How to think like a hacker - and how this is the key to a safe site
  • Defense against automated attacks
  • What Cross Site Request Forgeries are and how to prevent them
  • Methods to block Cross Site Scripting - the biggest problem in Drupal
  • How Drupal's Database API makes it easy to prevent SQL Injection
  • You will also have the opportunity to complete a hands-on site review to identify the vulnerabilities you may be facing.

    Keep in mind that this course is held on Monday, August 20, 2012 - the day before the conference begins.
