Track: Shift-Left Cybersecurity: Developer Accountability for Security

Day of week: Tuesday

In this track, we discuss application-layer security in both its traditional forms (e.g. SQL Injection, buffer overflow) and more cutting-edge forms like advanced encryption and the Internet of Things. Now more than ever, developers have the opportunity, and the responsibility to add security and privacy features directly to applications, rather than relying solely on the IT infrastructure or the security team. How can the dev team prevent the next major data leak? Come to this track to find out!
