Press release from: Pacific Coast Information Systems Ltd.

VANCOUVER, CANADA – As web applications continue to bear the brunt of hacker attacks, companies need the knowledge to protect their operations. Pacific Coast Information Systems Ltd. is offering a Web Application Security Fundamentals Webinar to help time-and-resource strapped departments in charge of security cope with the challenge.

“This webinar is a great opportunity for IT managers, web developers, webmasters and other professionals to understand the complex and ever-changing web application security landscape,” says Web Application Security Analyst Emerson Killam.

“Obviously, as more companies use web applications, there needs to be even greater attention paid to covering off application security,” he adds. “After all, no one wants to get their business shut down for days or weeks from a security breach. People have enough to deal with these days. We’re here to help.”

Future PCIS webinars will also provide information for CEOs and people in charge of risk management to understand web security.

Fundamentals of Web Application Security includes a discussion of web application security concepts and terminology, detailed examples of common web application exploits, and strategies on how to secure applications. PCIS will show how web application security exploits are used and how a business may participate in hacking and fraud activities without its knowledge.

The webinar agenda includes:

*Defining web applications
*Network Security vs Web Application Security
*Web Application Hacking Explained
*Common Application Exploits & Examples
*Understanding the Consequences of Security Failures
*Proactive Web Application Security
*Making Your Security Plan
*Devfense Security Solutions

This webinar happens on April 8, from 8:30-8:45 am Pacific Time. To be registered for this webinar, email and PCIS will send your registration confirmation information.
