the dot conf deep dive sessions – a new event series from NCI!
The dot conf may be ‘Ireland’s best small tech conference’ (according to tech journalist Karlin Lillington), but it has one serious drawback: it only happens once a year! Now National College of Ireland is keeping the love alive by rolling out a series of events, based on the dot conf’s popular deep dive sessions.
Smaller and more intimate than the dot conf, the deep dives will focus on technical topics including security, virtualisation and app development and will take place in NCI’s Cloud Competency Centre, created to support and strengthen the development of the cloud computing industry in Ireland and abroad.
Who are these events aimed at?
This series will appeal to the IT community and anyone with an interest in applying web technologies to their organisation. This includes: coders, developers, software architects, usability engineers, educators, bloggers, IT personnel and more.
About the first event
The first event is taking place on Thursday 29th August from 12.45 – 2pm.
There is no charge to attend and a free brown bag lunch will also be provided. Attendees are asked to bring their own laptops so they can fully participate in the activities on the day.
Topic: XSS Hack Attack – Is your web app secure?
The session will investigate a number of website vulnerabilities associated with cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. We will look at:
- What are the key characteristics of an XSS attack?
- Are there different types of XSS attack vulnerabilities?
- What measures can be put in place to mitigate the threat of your web app being susceptible to an XSS attack?
Participants will be given the opportunity to try their hands at an XSS attack against a vulnerable website and perhaps steal a few cookies along the way!
