SecureSet COS - Hacking 101: AppSec - 7/31

Hacking 101: AppSec

This 101 gives attendees a hands-on experience with both attack and defense in an application environment. Application Security (AppSec) is the use of software, hardware and procedural methods to combat vulnerabilities and protect critical data from external threats. Effective AppSec hinges upon an organization’s ability to examine and plug the “holes” that are present in the software used to run their business.

Your instructor for the evening is Erik Henrikson, MBA, CISSP, CSSLP. Erik is currently serving as one of SecureSet’s primary instructors at the Colorado Springs campus and has an extensive background, primarily spent in the roles of principal software engineer and risk manager.  Erik earned his BS in Computer Science from Texas A&M and his MBA in High Technology from Northeastern University.
