Application security is changing.  It’s not enough to just secure your custom code anymore.  We also need to secure the supply chain of open source and other third-party software.  And recently, attackers have discovered that by attacking the software factory itself, they can insert malicious code or trojans into applications and APIs before they are even deployed.
Join us to hear two battle-tested application security experts discuss real-world application security trends and metrics. Jeff and Farhad will use the software factory metaphor to explore a series of challenges in designing and running a software factory that can BOTH build great software AND ensure security.

During this event we will discuss:

  • Building a great security culture
  • Using the big machinery of software development to scale
  • Eliminating waste in security work
  • Delivering a compelling security story
  • Protecting applications in production
