Title: "You're Going to Need a Bigger Shovel - A Critical Look at Software Security Assurance" Abstract:OWASP has certainly pushed forward a lot of great advancements in Software Security Assurance, yet you're still fighting your organization to allow you to scan applications before they go live. Somewhere between the avalanche of site breaches, new technologies, and new apps you're going to need a better strategy. Let's face it, if you want to keep playing the game with today's rules, you're going to need a bigger shovel ...or you can simply choose to evolve your game.
This talk will cover why Software Security Assurance programs are still lagging in a majority of organizations, and provide a critical look at how a shift in strategy can help you fall behind a little slower.
