There are plenty of guides and checklists online that teach you “security best practices”, but most of them are pointless if you don’t understand how a hacker can exploit weaknesses in your apps to break through your defences. You’ll tick the boxes and overlook the real weaknesses , leaving your app open and your users exposed.
It’s time to change that! I want to teach you to Think Like a Hacker by actually performing some hacks yourself. In this talk, we’ll assume the role of a hacker and break into a vulnerable website. Exploring how the hacker thinks at each point, and how they’d go about compromising each stage. The talk is fully interactive, you can hack everything from just a phone browser - or just come along to watch and learn. By the end, you’ll know how to spot vulnerabilities and exploit them, so you can keep your apps protected.
