After a software “glitch” crashed 2 Boeing 737 Max 8 planes killing 346 people within 6 months of each other in 2018/2019, application security has reentered as one of the most important cyber security topics for C level executives. Creating an application security program can be an overwhelming experience for even the most seasoned cyber security or IT professional. From creating technical standards and deciding what to include in them, to determining how to prioritize issues and how best to incorporate remediation into a sprint schedule, where do you even begin and how do you make it successful? We’ll talk about all these and take a technical deep dive into issues that keep cyber security professionals up at night.
