Our Top 5 Most Watched Webinars of 2016

011017-WH-Email-Banner_Top5Webinars2016In 2016, we hosted over 30 live webinars, ranging from a technical demo and information on stored Cross-site scripting (XSS), to general InfoSec topics like ‘why executives should think like hackers’. Our webinars were attended by thousands of folks who left some great feedback. Some of you appreciated the amount of information we provided with your comments like, “Excellent content. As always very valuable information”, and others appreciated the technical details with comments like, “Thought it was put well together. The presenter used solid examples/samples for representation of thought points. Very well technically documented. Look forward to the next webinar”.

As we head into the new year, we thought we’d share our 5 most watched webinars of 2016.  (These are not in any particular order.) Like “must see TV”, these are well worth taking the time to watch and learn from!

#1 Software Security Resurgent: Preventing the Unthinkable

Think you understand software security? Think again. If you thought the growth of mobile was explosive, wait until you wade into the brave new world of IoT endpoints, where the security of the software running everything from industries, utilities and transportation to your own home will be the front line of defense. At the same time, systems are approaching a continuous state of development and deployment requiring entirely new processes and a new sort of harmony between developers, operations and security teams.

#2 WhiteHat Security’s 2016 Web Applications Security Stats Report Explained 
The 2016 Web Applications Security Statistics Report was compiled using data collected from tens of thousands of websites, revealing that, on average, the majority of web applications exhibit two or more serious vulnerabilities per application for every industry at any given point in time. We provide unique perspectives on the state of website security. Data by industry will be presented and accompanied by expert analysis and recommendations. 

# 3 Decoded: PCI DSS Guidelines

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is continuously changing to protect user data from exposure. Take a deeper dive into the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and how it affects the way you achieve application security. 

# 4 Top 10 Web Hacking Techniques of 2015

Every year, our adversaries gain more intelligence and the number of attacks on our applications increases. The damage of these attacks is costly to organizations, reaching millions of dollars a year. The Top 10 Web Hacks webinar represents exhaustive research conducted by a panel of experienced security industry professionals. We will discuss the latest and most insidious web-based attacks of the year. 

# 5 Uploading JavaScript via Spreadsheet: A Stored Cross-site Scripting Demonstration

Learn how a malicious user can leverage spreadsheet upload functionality to exploit one of the most pervasive and severe web application vulnerabilities, cross-site scripting. This webinar covers: what is cross-site scripting and the three types of XSS injection; why not encoding special characters leaves the application vulnerable to cross-site scripting; and the business impact of this stored DOM XSS. 

We look forward to bringing you even more informative content in 2017 and beyond!  If you have any special requests for webinars on any topic related to application security – from IoT to API security to DevSecOps and beyond – please be in touch!  We welcome your ideas.
