ISSA-LA, OWASP-LA and HTCIA September Dinner Meeting

September 17, 2014 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Topic: Securing the SDLC in the real world

The earlier you address security in the engineering of software, the less expensive it will be for your organization. There are many who will tell you that you need to change all of your current processes around building software so it is more secure. Many of those forces are consultants charging high rates to help you deeply modify what you are doing today. This talk will will take the opposite approach. How can you add a few reasonable and mostly lightweight processes to how you build software today to make it more secure? Software development is like driving a boat. You need to look ahead make small changes to steer effectively.
