As a developer, you are the first line when it comes to security for any products you may be building. There is often a misconception that all software security vulnerabilities are due to misconfigurations, using unmaintained open source libraries, using "insecure" languages, or by making dumb mistakes like hard-coding passwords. In actuality, it can be very easy to make potentially extreme security mistakes even only using built-in functions and libraries bundled with the latest version of Python. This talk will cover a number of these potential security mistakes that can be all too easy to make.
