Security: Process, code & hands-on training

16 August 2010
We are sorry, the training Security: Process, code & hands-on training has been canceled. For further information please contact

Web security threats are real, and your site is probably vulnerable to attack. In this full-day 8-hour session you'll learn how to make your site and processes secure. The training begins with a review of the most common kinds of vulnerabilities found in Drupal sites. We'll then break them down and focus on the specific ways to address those problems in both site configuration and code. The day will end with a practical, hands-on site review where attendees will have time to review a Drupal site to identify and fix vulnerabilities individually.
