Practically Teaching the Next Generation
Chrissy Morgan

Abstract

In order to mitigate for the future we must find innovative ways in which to train the next generation of application developers and security professionals, on how to spot issues and rectify. This should come before entering their professional careers, ideally at university. Students are actively taught on how to attack, however there is improvements to be made with the current state of practical mitigation teaching tools. Chrissy, having researched this subject matter for her masters dissertation will present the key research findings, the areas that need improvement, providing insight on how we can better teach our students. A realistic view looking everywhere for inspiration from Academia through to the internet underground.
