In this final Web Security School webcast, Mike Cobb, Managing Director of Cobweb Applications Ltd. and author of IIS Security, looks at how the actual content of your Web site can open holes in its defenses. He uncovers the security risks of dynamically created content and looks at how proper content management can greatly improve your overall security. Mike also looks at the security lifecycle and how to respond to an attack, as well as the problems of site hijacking and phishing. As an added bonus, the tutorial contains checklists for improving the security of remote workers connecting to the office from home. There is a growing trend for hackers to attack networks via home and remote users but by following the recommended security practices, these checklists will help you block this potential hole in your defenses.
