Session I - Building an Application Security Program to Change Your Security Culture

Vulnerabilities continue to run rampant and disrupt the products and services we deliver to our customers. How does an individual work to drastically lower vulnerabilities within an organization? The answer is to change the application security culture from within, by deploying an application security program with secure development life cycle, education, and support. A strong application security program is foundational for anyone who builds anything with technology. In the mind of the customer today, security is non-negotiable. Non-negotiable security requires a strong application security program.
We’ll define the problem facing most organizations with implementing application security, discuss the need to change your security culture, and provide real world examples for how an organization can create a world class application security program. Join us to hear how to change the security DNA of everyone in your organization.
