Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Webcast Whether you're already knee-deep in security challenges or about to embark on such a strategy, we have a webcast that you should find useful.

Just two weeks ago we ran an Application Security Webcast with Jon Collins from research house Freeform Dynamics and a couple of hardcore experts from HP - including security guru, and Chief Technologist for the Application Security Center at HP, Caleb Sima.

No matter where you are with your security experience, says Caleb, "[you] must start with three fundamentals which are essential for a successful programme to start - people, process and technology”.

This should set the tone for an event which sets out to explore the fundamentals of an application security program.

All of the webcast speakers know that web applications are a daunting challenge for IT security professionals. So they've delivered content that helps you understand the challenges, break them into digestible chunks and give you a framework to work to - along with a raft of anecdotal evidence to support the initiatives they're suggesting.

You can tune into this conversation exploring the issues and discussing the tools, best practices and implementation strategies available to help meet today’s application security challenges, at your leisure, right here. ®
