Regular, 60 minute presentation
Room: Campsite 6
Security has for many decades been an after thought in software development, but with the advent of cloud and SaaS along with ubiquitous use of technology in every day life we can no longer ignore the consequences of insecure software. We live in a world world of increasingly methodical and organized cybersecurity threats that has put our national infrastructure at risk and the lives of millions potentially on the line. The Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) along with the FBI, NSA and five other countries' cybersecurity organizations recently released strong guidance aimed at software vendors around Secure by Design and Secure by Default. As a technology community, however, we can no longer wait for government agencies to step in to enforce this - our national security and livelihoods are at daily risk in the way we currently release software. Join this talk to understand what "Shift Left of Left" Security is all about and why you should prioritize it in your software practices.
