It happens even to tech giants: they get hacked and client databases get leaked. Let's look at what data is the most sensitive and what steps we can take to protect it, while still keeping all of the user experience intact. Come see why most web applications do passwords and credit card information wrong.

Nice approach on an important security topic.
I would love to see more of this post mortem preparations f.e. make it easy to change your db, cache, service credentials.

Solid presentation on a very important topic: Security. We all need to hear, learn and apply this and constantly question the work we do every day to protect the users.

It is always a good idea to think about the next data break. Anna presented some good toughts and ideas.

While I stand by the opinion that Anna is a great speaker and teacher, this talk in particular offered little new insights. Also the title was kind of misleading, after all, most of the talk was focused on prevention and best practices and NOT on surviving your next breach once it happens (which is what I was looking forward to, as it is the way more interesting and commonly less talked about subject).

Still, the discussion she moderated afterwards was rather interesting and all in all the talk did of course offer some new ideas for use in my daily business, I guess it's just not what I was hoping for.
