Security: Specialty workshop with Acquia Security Team

In this full-day session you'll learn how to evaluate your risks and secure your site and processes.

Web security vulnerabilities are a real threat to your goals and should not be taken lightly, your site is probably insecure. This course was developed for those with experience building and maintaining Drupal sites.

This training is delivered through Acquia's extensive training partner program.

The training begins with a review of the most common kinds of vulnerabilities found in Drupal sites. We'll then break them down and focus on the specific ways to address those problems in both site configuration and code.

  • Insecure configurations
  • Cross Site Scripting
  • Cross Site Request Forgeries
  • Access bypass, the menu system, and permissions
