Presentation Overview

Security is more important than ever before—particularly for the application developer. APEX is no exception to this rule, as there are plenty of things that can be either misconfigured or set incorrectly, resulting in a less secure application.

This session will go through a checklist of what you, as an APEX developer, need to complete before promoting any APEX application to production.
