    Hooked on Security, 10th July 2019

    Everyone wants to sell things online. eCommerce websites are popping up left right and center. But where do you start? Our boss/clients have an idea of what they want, but we as software developers are a key stakeholder when it comes to building eCommerce systems. After all, we’re both building the application and using it. There are multiple paths we can go down, but a common challenge that we all face is security; Protecting the customers data! During the talk, we’ll look at some real world examples and security titbits in how we can protect the application, with Rob drawing on over 9 years of eCommerce experience.
