Securing Your Umbraco

The Session

So you’ve built your lovely new Umbraco powered site and you’re ready to push it up onto your production servers and switch that DNS. Victory at last.

But wait!

Are you sure that your website is secured against those web nasties? In this session we’ll look at the steps you can take to secure your Umbraco installation. From simple steps you can take in adding items into your web.config through to running penetration tests. Have you thought about those HTTP headers exposing your platform, sql injection, session hijacking, encrypting cookie content or cross site scripting? In this session we’ll take a simple site using Umbraco, demonstrate it’s vulnerabilities then go through and sort them.
