Dispatches From The Geeks

News and Announcements from the MCS Systems Group

CIS offering Web Application Developer Training, Jan 13.

Please see the below announcement from CIS. I encourage anyone who’s doing web application development to attend, or at least one person from each group engaged in that sort of activity.

As the systems administrators, we get notified whenever a web app on a system we’re responsible for has a detected vulnerability, and based on what we’ve encountered, I think there’d be some real benefit to picking up on some good coding practices (especially sanitizing input).

All,

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

The CSPO is sponsoring web application developer training for anyone interested. The training will go over threats to web applications and best coding practices to mitigate attacks.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?

January 13th , 2015, 10:00am-2:00 p.m. Building 240 Rm. 1416

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

Forward this message to any developer that codes web applications and/or web service admins. Attend the training!

WHAT IS THE EFFECT ON YOU?

Hopefully you come out of the training with some action items to check the health of your web applications that are running in your inter/intra nets.

FOR MORE INFORMATION

Please contact the cyber office for any more details. More information will be sent specifically to the CSPRs who requested their web applications to be tested.
