We have two great talks lined up for April!

🎤 Web Security for Complete Beginners (and other people)

by Mark Goodwin

This talk covers the basics of Web Security at a level suitable for web developers with little or no previous knowledge of security.

Mark will tell you what you need to know common web security problems, how they're exploited, and some things you can do to protect your applications against them.

This talk will also include some useful perspectives for folk who perhaps already know some of the facts.

🎤 How not to get pwned by XSS

by Samuel King

In this talk we will be looking at Cross Site Scripting and how to avoid getting owned by it! Sam will be covering a variety of different XSS exploits, how to detect them using ZAP, and how a Content Security Policy can be used to prevent XSS attacks.

Sam is a second-year Computer Science Student at the University of Nottingham and is presenting his first tech talk as an 'apprentice' to Mark Goodwin. Sam has been actively involved in the Nottingham tech community since he arrived here just a year ago working with HackSoc Nottingham to put on guest speaker events.
