Hacking THAT: Real-World Penetration Testing

August 09, 2018 13:17

Did you watch the 6 o’clock news this week? Cybersecurity is constantly making headlines, and nearly every day we hear about some major hack or new data breach.

But what does that have do with your website or web application?

The vast majority of cyber attacks against a web application are relatively easy to defend -- yet most applications remain vulnerable. In fact many developers aren't even aware of how simple these attacks are to execute. Spoiler alert: it's really, really easy.

Let's Hack THAT Conference!

Leading up to the conference, we've been quietly hacking at the ThatConference web application to see what we'd find. Some of our findings might surprise you -- we'll talk in detail about some of the vulnerabilities we discovered and how we found them, and we'll discuss the latest open source tools and techniques you can use to strengthen your own cyber defenses.

Hacking a web application is far easier than you would ever believe. It's time to think like a hacker and start defending yourself.
