MAX Session Highlight: Shlomy Gantz On Security

Here is another MAX 2007 session that you should pay attention to …
If you build web apps, any web apps, then you must pay attention to security. But what does that actually mean? What are the risks? What are OS and HTTP vulnerabilities, and how are they taken advantage of? How do SQL injection attacks work, and are you truly protected?
Shlomy Gantz has been teaching web app security (from a ColdFusion perspective) for a long time now, and I sat in on one his sessions a year or so ago. He doesn’t just talk about security risks, but actually demonstrates the risks and how they are exploited, and offers practical guidance on how to address the risks.
Shlomy will be presenting his Securing ColdFusion at MAX this year, with content updated for the new ColdFusion 8. His sessions run twice, on Tuesday, October 2, 2:45pm-3:45pm, and
Wednesday, October 3, 1:45pm-2:45pm. This one is highly recommended.

    Ben – yet another great reason to attend MAX! And for those that haven’t attended MAX, it is without a doubt a tremendous event.
    However, if you can’t make it to Chicago for the event, Shlomy will be giving this presentation to the Connecticut ColdFusion User Group on September 18th. Details are on the site: or you can email me to RSVP (domalley AT
