Navigating the web security landscape

Navigating the web security landscape

As a professional speaker, I have educated audiences large and small about the importance of web security. I have spoken for numerous kinds of events, including internal company events, conferences and local meetups. The formats of my talks range from a high-level overview of the importance of web security in a keynote-style speech, to long and technical sessions on a specific area of web security.

Thanks to a combination of professional expertise and high energy, complemented with a touch of humor, Philippe succeeded to enchant our mostly technical audience throughout the whole session.

  4. If your event is public and you want additional visibility for it, I will promote it well ahead of time in my network, on my website and on social media

Philippe is an expert in security, a great communicator and a wonderful person to interact with. We were incredibly proud to welcome him at NG-BE 2016.

Public speaking engagements

I talk about a variety of topics, but in the past year, the most requested topics can be narrowed down to these two:

  • Building secure single page applications, with frameworks such as AngularJS and EmberJS
  • How web security has evolved, and why traditional security technologies no longer suffice

What others are saying ...

Knowledge is key when it comes to Web Security. One little detail can easily break your entire web application security. At NG-BE 2016, Philippe shared some of his insights on on how to prevent XSS attacks in Angular applications. He managed to explain difficult concepts in such a way that the audience could easily understand it. The feedback from the audience was incredibly positive.

During our annual TechDay for the IT division, Philippe presented his view on why traditional web security technologies no longer suffice. Thanks to a combination of professional expertise and high energy, complemented with a touch of humor, Philippe succeeded to enchant our mostly technical audience throughout the whole session. Moreover, also the less technical attendees confirmed that this session was inspiring. In short, I recommend Philippe as a keynote speaker.

Very interesting explanation of both known and lesser known threats of the modern web. Recommended and eye-opening material for every web developer. Philippe is an engaging speaker and he has a sound expertise in the field of web security. He also devoted plenty of time to answer questions from the audience.

Peter De Rudder, Director Professional Services, AMPLEXOR International

Excellent session for experienced practitioners as well as for lay people. After this session, none of our developers will treat the subject of web security condescendingly anymore. Definitely recommended as an introduction to contemporary web security.
