Session overview:

Application security has traditionally fallen on the shoulders of development and IT teams as organizations tend to view it as a technology issue. However, due to the inherent financial and operational risk software applications bring to the enterprise, organizations are rethinking their approaches. Application security is considered a topic for technical people, and business leaders play a pivotal role in its success at their organizations.

The responsibilities for application security are no longer just for the technical team, but executives also need to understand security risk and the secure software development lifecycle to ensure the delivery of secure and robust applications.   

Key takeaways:

Attendees will learn to:

  • Understand the gap between what people think application security is and what a mature organization does to build secure applications;
  • Understand that application security involves not only everyone on the development team, but also people with responsibility for enterprise risk management;
  • Understand that every role has a different set of application security responsibilities.

Danny Harris has been an information and application security practitioner for over 20 years. He is knowledgeable in all phases of the secure software development life cycle (SDLC) and is responsible for the creation and delivery of application security training and SDLC programs at Security Innovation.
