Recognising the inevitable fact that coding mistakes act as time bombs, how one tiny programming mistake caused a worldwide calamity, having been created 15-20 years earlier) and deciphering past-time mistakes is an arduous job, comes the overwhelming demand from the Business Desk of companies with software developer units: gaining TIME. This can only be reached by attaining a correct coding routine from beginning and avoid patching requirements and constant search for causes and pitfalls when incidents hit in.
Application Security has become one of the hottest topics since recent incidents in cyberspace. While companies spend huge amounts of money on network security and endpoint protection, vulnerable software are being deployed – and websites and services being hacked – on a daily basis. Sometimes there is a total lack of basics; sometimes the cost pressure and limited time available to developers de-focuses the team from paying attention to application security. At the same time, hackers have unlimited resources and unlimited time to plan and carry out attacks.
We see education as the golden opportunity where we could impact application security, and thus cyber security in a greater extent. Our delegates grow a much stronger immune system against attacks, sustaining a higher level code hygiene, resulting in a more secure application.
