Economic growth today is largely based on digital technology, which means that every major business has become a software company in some form. With 23 million software developers around the world today, software developers are now the primary architects underpinning the success of many public and private organizations. Within this environment, many development teams have moved from a niche corner of their organization right into the ‘hot seat’. They are challenged to rapidly translate business needs into competitive applications that are convenient, trustworthy, and secure. ‘Convenient, trustworthy and secure’ are easy words to write on a page, but infinitely more challenging to deliver, especially when there are 111 billion lines of code written every year. Software security continues to be a major challenge, with the threat and reality of breaches growing every day. 

Despite ever-increasing application security budgets, testing platforms, tools and penetration tests, the number of successful cyber attacks keep rising. Further to this, the same security errors are routinely found in software day after day, year after year, and the threats are expanding as a result. The time has come to evolve developer software security training to be a constant and positive part of their everyday working routine. Writing great software means it must be secure. Improving secure coding skills and outcomes will add a powerful layer of cyber protection for organizations, and will help them write better, faster code. Developers don’t need to become security experts, but they must be empowered to be the first line of defense for their organization.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • What is wrong with the current approach to software security
  • How to empower developer security through a positive approach
  • How to make secure code training and tools simple, relevant and engaging
