About This Talk

Language : Myanmar

Traditionally, as developers, our priority has always been to develop stable, well-designed and useful applications, which naturally brings our focus largely on the features and architecture of the application. However, with more and more data breaches and hacking incidents happening around the world, costing billions of dollars to corporations, security is no longer an area we can ignore. With more and more awareness campaigns in the developer community, people are starting to follow secured programming practices but is this really all there is to the security of your application or customer data? Unfortunately not, especially for android native or web-based android applications that allows user file uploads. File-based attacks are getting more and more sophisticated and traditional security measures are failing to handle them effectively. Be it ransomware or advanced persistent threats, these malwares are seriously threatening an organization’s reputation and costing incredibly painful damages.

In this talk, I will be sharing about what are some of the potential loopholes, what are some of the sophisticated ways attackers use for file-based attacks and how they can bypass the traditional security measure as well as what are the latest security technologies available out there in the wild that could be useful in mitigating this risk.
