Cryptography and Internet Security

Just The Good Stuff


This hands-on workshop covers the essentials of cryptography and security for web applications. Ever-increasing awareness of government leaks, corporate data loss, and privacy concerns makes this topic a must-have for every software professional. Know how to protect your data, whether your application is legally required to (think HIPAA, PCI, or any other number of privacy regulations) or not.

Like all of our courses, this workshop follows our proven Learn How To Learn™ learning environment. You'll not only gain practical skills, you will be ready, confident, and inspired to continue learning even after the workshop ends.
