Making and Baking an Application Security Department

Presented by: Bill Sempf
Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Houston, we have a problem: we need more application security professionals. There is a lack of talented folks that can test, document and train developers on how to fix web and mobile applications for security vulnerabilities. Verizon’s estimates of 86% of 2017 breaches are caused by an application security component. This is a problem we must solve. Bill and his team have been researching and experimenting on ways to solve the application security talent shortage. During this session, Bill will explain what they learned by teaching students of different experience levels. He will answer questions like: "Who should I start with?" and "What do they need to know to be effective?" as well as what tools are most appropriate for them to learn.
