The first part of the tutorial will focus on the common security best practices aimed at putting prevention mechanisms in place for common attack vectors such as XSS, SQL Injection, session hijacking, etc.

The second part of this tutorial will focus on the security best practices and solutions designed to address security issues within an application's business and processing logic. It will provide an overview of how to securely implement these in application data management controls within ACLs and data-models, as well as how to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls.
