Join Tony Grasso from Cybertoa to hear about Secure Development practices through real world examples.


  • Health Client Attack – what it looked like, the effect, the mistakes made and the disastrous remedy.
  • Encryption – Disaster, it’s finally delivered the promise. A forensic investigation tale.

The session will wrap-up with a discussion on:

  • Security by design, by code, by ethos.
  • Tools and methods: OWASP, BurpSuite, etc.
