Box Tech Talk
Effective Approaches to Web Application Security
By Zane Lackey

Building a worldwide marketplace at scale, Etsy has overcome some of today's big new application security challenges. 

Zane will outline some of Etsy's innovative approaches to application security problems posed by a continuous deployment environment. He'll touch upon useful security systems such as automatic vulnerability and application fault detection, effective platform defenses for XSS/SQLi, practical security alerting mechanisms, and visualizations of security related data.  

Additionally, Zane will discuss how to use common performance monitoring and metric tracking tools for security purposes, demonstrating how how to create these systems using free tools that improve security posture without commercial security products.

Food and drinks will be provided.
