SPEAKER: Halvor Sakshaug (Conformit)

ABSTRACT: Web application security vulnerabilities are easy to introduce and sometimes easy to find and catastrophic when exploited. Even though we take care in protecting a web application with industry grade encryption and government compliant privacy procedures, we leave the front door wide open if we don't take application security seriously. This talk presents lessons in web security through findings in an application that jeopardized security for tens of thousands kids, parents and employees.

SPEAKER BIO: Halvor Sakshaug is Application Security Lead at Confirmit. He holds a Master's degree in mathematics (cryptography) from NTNU and went on to work as a developer. After some years these two paths converged into application security.
