On 21st Jan 2016, Edgis community member Sunny Neo conducted a cybersecurity awareness talk on the importance of secure web development to many aspiring web developers at NTU.
In this talk, I would like to bring the topic on Web security to the attention of all Web developers out there. Seeing is definitely believing – I will not bore you down with too much theoretical details that you can learn from textbooks. Not only will I be demonstrating very real techniques used by malicious actors/hackers (whatever you known them as). I will also be highlighting what Web developers can do to build better secured Web applications altogether.
