Securing the SDLC in the real world
The earlier you address security in the engineering of software, the less expensive it will be for your organization. There are many who will tell you that you need to change all of your current processes around building software so it is more secure. Many of those forces are consultants charging high rates to help you deeply modify what you are doing today. This talk will will take the opposite approach.
