Software continues to run the modern enterprise, and while it has the potential to drive innovation it can also introduce vulnerability. Rapid release cycles often prioritize features over security and hackers are adapting their tactics to target distributed software applications that are increasingly accessible.

    Please prove you are human by selecting the house.

    Security teams can't single-handedly address this dynamic threatscape, so organizations must rethink how to strengthen security resiliency. Software teams are on the front lines in preventing vulnerabilities, but to build resilient applications they need to be equipped with security awareness and intimate knowledge of architecture, integration points, and deployment environments
    Topics covered include:

    • Root causes of prominent software-borne breaches.
    • Taking inventory of teams (and going beyond developers).
    • Building essential awareness - security principles, attack vectors, and threats.
    • Being early to the (3rd) party - mitigating API, open-source, and cloud risk.
