There are times when you actually think that your site has nothing worth being hacked for, but websites are compromised all the time. Modern web development today, has many challenges and security is very important and under-emphasized.
In fact, hacking is regularly performed by automated scripts written to scour the Internet in an attempt to exploit known website security issues.
Just then, two speakers from Agmo Studio Sdn Bhd , Jia Hui Lee and Adzhar was invited to give a talk, “Principle of Information Technology Security” at International Islamic university Malaysia ( IIUM ), in collaboration with Kulliyah of Information and Communication Technology, to share insights on web security.
As an information technology (IT) student, technology skills in handling computer and telecommunications hardware and software plays an increasingly important role in business, but there are basic practices , especially web security which every developer should be taking it seriously as a matter of course.
The purpose of this talk is to create awareness on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) which is a computer networking protocol for securing connections between network application clients and servers over an insecure network, such as the internet.
While the talk was full of insights of necessary security and privacy in web oriented communication systems, both speakers share their experience that they had gone through years ago. It was informative and interesting in ways that can help students in IIUM to be aware of the importance of web security.
