Security Culture in Development - Wolfgang Goerlich Converge 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Security Culture in Development
Wolfgang Goerlich

The majority of security vulnerabilities come from flaws in software code. While the rate in which these flaws occur remains constant, we are now developing more code than ever before as well as deploying software to many more devices. We must address the software development process and it can only be done by creating a culture of security. This session presents the Security Culture Framework (SCF) and applies it to an entirely fictional development organization. We will discuss awareness training and tying the training to tangible improvements in code. By using the SCF Topics/Planner/Metrics approach, we will move the organization toward developing every more secure code. The presentation will conclude with a case study for applying the SCF to your software development team.

J Wolfgang Goerlich supports information security initiatives for clients in the healthcare, education, financial services, and energy verticals. Wolfgang regularly advises and presents on the topics of changing culture, managing risk, and securing systems through-out the development lifecycle.
