The "Other" Security Fundamentals

ABSIA's Ian Gibson hosted Trusted Impact's Tom Crampton for a security webinar on Thursday 24 September at 11am (AEST). This was a 30 minute interactive webinar that asked participants questions, allowing the audience to answer confidentially before sharing the results. 

While this webinar was not recorded, a copy of the insights from this webinar can be accessed here.  


About the Webinar

Just like changing the oil for your car won't keep you from breaking down or having an accident, "Penetration Testing" won't protect you from getting hacked. It's a good step, but Penetration Testing is not the panacea to keep your business software from breaking down or having a data breach. This webinar will use simple analogies to communicate an important point for all ABSIA members. The webinar will be an interactive conversation about the 'other' fundamentals of security in software applications.
