Show, Don’t Tell, Your Developers How To Write Secure Code – Janet Worthington – ASW #213

Applications are the most frequent external attack vector for companies. However, application security can improve only if developers either code securely or remediate existing security flaws — unfortunately, many don’t receive training with proper security know-how. In this session, we will talk about the state of application security education and what you can do to secure what you sell.
