We all set up websites to publish the institution's information on. None of us wants to see the website hacked or defaced or whatever else can happen to a website. EEA has a lot of systems, and we certainly don't want any nasty surprises. When I get a new website to install, I usually enter a single quote (') in any text input box to see if the application is vulnerable to the SQL injection attack hackers use to get in. This is just one, and the most obvious, of a dozen attack routes. Almost everytime, the application fails that one single test. Therefore we have purchased a training course on webapplication security.
The purpose is to educate the people developing software for us on how to do it securely, and there are seats available for our Eionet partners.
The target audience are developers, security responsible, system administrators and people who thinks security is interesting. Some knowledge of programming is beneficial, but not necessary. We will provide certificates of attendance if requested.
You can see the agenda and register here: http://www.eionet.eu.int/Training/websecurity01.
The training takes place at EEA's location in Copenhagen from 01-Dec-2005 11:00 to 02-Dec-2005 15:00. Most of you need only spend one night in Copenhagen. We provide the training for free, but we do not reimburse travel-expenses.
