The State of XSS: Best practices for a secure web experience

Matthew Kairys Lead Software Engineer DiUS

As the web continues to evolve, it’s become increasingly challenging for developers to build secure web experiences that users can trust. Cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks continue to exploit many trusted web applications today, resulting in malicious JavaScript being injected and executed within a user’s browser. This can lead to catastrophic results such as the user’s session being hijacked and having their personal data stolen. This session will help you understand the latest developments in XSS and how to follow best practices to mitigate these types of attacks. You’ll walk away with a checklist to help validate that your applications are best secured to protect your users and digital brand.
