Workshop: Hack your own site

Session topics: Security

Target Audience: Developers

Prerequisites: This will be an entry-level workshop. Anyone who's ever built a website in Umbraco before can follow along. Please bring an inquisitive mind, high spirits and a laptop with web browser.


You'll learn to avoid the most common security mistakes people make when delivering websites and how to easily avoid them. There is plenty of time to discuss and your teacher will explain why some things make sense while other things are nonsense.

Setting up https for your Umbraco site is pretty easy these days, but that's only where the fun begins. You need to know about all the acronyms like... TLS, CSP, SRI, 2FA, HSTS, etc.
We'll take you through the steps it would take to properly secure an Umbraco site with a hands-on approach so you can learn how to do it. Luckily most of these things are not particularly difficult and there's plenty of online tools to help you check that you've done everything correctly.
When you're done with this workshop you'll know how to secure your site better than even most banks do these days!
