Continuous Security in A Fast Changing World

The world is not just fast changing but it is also becoming more vulnerable. More often bad people are trying to steal your data, hold it for ransom, or sell it to the higher bidder. They have all the time in the world, access to tools written by other people that exploit weaknesses, and good incentives to breach your systems. There's nothing you can do for 100% prevention, but you have to try to reduce the risks. So, what do you do?

In this talk, I will go over a few things you can do, as a developer, architect, business analyst, or tester, to reduce the probability of a security breach:

* Understand the attacker mindset

* Learn the most important security vulnerabilities for programmers

* Identify potential issues through threat modeling

By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of the modern practices you can use to detect vulnerabilities early or to remove them altogether through early decisions.
