AppSec: The Lies Holding You Back

You think you need a penetration test, but you probably need something different.  You think you're budgeting appropriately, but you're probably not.  You think you're finding your security vulnerabilities, but you're probably not finding the important ones. You are barraged with claims from security suppliers, each saying they’ll solve all of your problems in what feels like overblown promises.  You want those promises to be true, but a nagging part of you knows they probably aren’t.  All you want is to be secure. I feel your pain: this session is to help you get application security right.   But to get it right, you need to stop doing it wrong. In this session, CTOs, CISOs, and other leaders learn effective strategies and tactics for how to find and fix security vulnerabilities, before your attacker finds and exploits them. Based on a forthcoming book that exposes the many misconceptions about application security, this session combines stories from the front lines of security research and security consulting, in order to entertain and equip you to achieve your application security mission. You’ll learn ideas that you can implement right away.
