About the Talk

With incident response and penetration testing currently receiving most of our application security dollars, it would appear that industry has decided to treat the symptom instead of the disease. 'Pushing left' refers to starting security earlier in the SDLC; addressing the problem throughout the process, and specifically during the development phase. From scanning your code with a vulnerability scanner to red team exercises, developer education programs and bug bounties, this talk will show you how to 'push left', like a boss.

This talk is aimed at developers, operations, DevOps, people who are new to application security, managers, or anyone who works in any other field of security than AppSec.
