At this year’s EuroSTAR conference on software Testing (Dublin, Nov 24-27) I presented on web application security and how it is completely different to traditional mainframe testing. If you’re not familiar with SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting, Cross-Site Request Forgery or a host of other ways of attacking your system and applications, then this was the talk for you.

- Why it’s important
- Who should be doing it
- How it should be done
