Developing Secure Software—A Hands-on Approach

Add to calendar

If your idea of security in the development process is throwing your code to the security team for approval just before you deliver your app, release deadlines are probably stressful for you. You also know that there has to be a better way—a way to build security into the code from the beginning so that you have confidence that your code is as secure as you can make it when you deliver it. You have to use the right tools, while you pay attention to the details and the right techniques. Most of all, you have to be disciplined to use proper coding and testing practices. With a good foundation, you can catch most security problems early in the development lifecycle, even if you aren’t a security guru yourself. Join Gene as he walks you through practical exercises building a Java application with a security-first mindset, setting up the continuous integration process, and growing a DevSecOps culture. You’ll walk away with techniques and open-source tools that you can apply to any development effort.
