How to better understand and defend against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

For this Tech Talk, Jon Kammo explores the intriguing and complicated world of cyber security by explaining a common type of attack: cross-site request forgery. The attack's consequences vary wildly, ranging from changing a user's shipping address to the much more severe, like granting the impostor admin privileges to read or delete the entire database. In addition to providing several historical and hypothetical examples, Jon gives a much-needed explanation of this alarmingly sneaky attack and explains recommended mitigation strategies against this commonly misunderstood security exploit!
