Code review is, hopefully, part of regular development practices for any organization. Adding security elements to code review can be the most effective measure in preventing vulnerabilities, very early in the development lifecycle, even before the first commit. This is an interactive presentation which will contain the basic elements to get you started. The audience will help review more than a dozen software examples in order to figure out the good from the ugly. The software examples are based on OWASP Top 10 and SANS Top 25 favourites such as Injection, Memory Flaws, Sensitive Data Exposure, Cross-Site Scripting and Broken Access Control.
