‘Applification’ of business and implications for security: Securing software development

29 Apr 2014, 14:35 - 15:35

Keynote Theatre


Agile software development is critical in enabling rapid  adaption and speed to market for new applications. The continued ‘applification’ of business highlights the importance of embedding security into the SDLC to ensure security architecture is in place to minimise vulnerabilities and ensure software meets regulations and OWASP standards. Often there is a lack of communication between security and development as the business pushes to make the application available as quickly as possible. So how can security professionals ensure that applications are secure by design? How can security and development work together to achieve best practice and ensure the rapid delivery of secure applications to enable business growth securely? How can DevOps be used to embed security into the development cycle?

This session will bring together security practitioners and developers to discuss how to build security into design.

  • Define security requirements  and discover how to embed security into the evolving SDLC
  • Identify the key factors thathamper the integration of security into the SDLC and how to overcome them
  • Find out how to communicate security to key stakeholders to ensure that security is embedded in development
  • Understand the governance and compliance issues around security for agile software and application development
