Webcast : Understanding SQL Injection and the Consequences
Presenter: K. Brian Kelley
While we might wish SQL injection was no longer a problem in our industry, multiple large breaches in 2017 alone reveals that it still is a problem. The largest among them was the Equifax breach, for which security researchers found a number of vulnerabilities in public facing web sites, which included sites vulnerable to SQL injection attacks.
In this webinar we’ll look at how a SQL injection attack works, what an attacker can gain using a SQL injection attack, and how we might prevent such an attack.
We’ll also look beyond Microsoft SQL Server, since the best layer for an attack is any layer that processes the input.
