Topic: Reducing Risk in your software applications
Find out what works to reduce risk in applications. It's not just about your internal developers writing secure code or pen testers hacking away at your apps. I will share some statistics and trends around the state of software security and the best ways to address the threat. What are the most mature organizations doing in application security? The tips, techniques, and strategies presented here are gleaned from the experience of Veracode scanning over 130 billion lines of code and working with some of the world's largest companies.
