Security is no longer optional; organizations can no longer look the other way. A security breach is something that not only brings reputational costs but can also cost millions of dollars in losses from lost business or lawsuits. Humans are always going to be part of the development process, but automation is the first line of defense. In this session, you will learn what security issues to look for when developing and deploying software, and potential changes you should consider to your development process to handle them. You will also learn how GitHub, and other tools, can be used to provide process control and automation that allows you to ship more secure software.

You will learn:

  • What security issues to look for when developing/deploying software
  • What changes you should consider in your development process
  • How tools can help you become more secure
