Featured Presentation: Analysis of Drupal Security
An overview of how Drupal, one of the most commonly used, open source content management systems, is secured against the OWASP Top Ten, some common configuration mistakes, and emerging trends on Drupal exploits. What attacks are targeting Drupal applications? Personal thoughts from a developer, user and admin of Drupal sites about clear steps that can be taken to improve security with Drupal applications.

Speaker Bio
Andrew has been a developer for 7 years. He began as a PHP and C# developer, where he entered web application development by designing and creating web services. For the last 5 years he has been a web developer in Boulder. He has always had an interest in web application, network, and cyber security and has brought those interests into his web developer role with securing web applications. He is often amused how passwords are still stored as plain text, untrusted HTML input is not validated, and GET parameters are not sanitized.

Seating is limited and is prioritized for those who RSVP. Parking is available through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone. Food and drinks will be provided and there will be a networking session preceding the meeting. As always, meetings are free to attend.
