DevSecOps: Diving In to Drupal Security
This session will cover key Drupal security concepts, from administering a website to developing modules, to how security matters in your hosting environment. Based on the OWASP Top 10 and other best-practices in security, we will look at the major risks and threats everyone should be aware of in order to stay secure and prevent disaster from striking your carefully crafted project(s).
We will dive into the processes and tools you have at your disposal to help harden your website against attackers, and how to build with security from the ground up.
You will learn about common mistakes developers should avoid, security and the Drupal community, hosting environment pitfalls, and how ultimately, security is everyone's responsibility.
