Too Fast Less Furious - Accelerating Application Security with small teams in high flux environments

Future Cyber Tech, Application Security & DevOps Theatre

Wed 26th Sep 02:20 to 02:50

The presentation is based on learnings of developing  an Application Security Program in small and medium sized companies. The talk discusses some of the challenges and fun times faced with evolving and scaling security with a small team. The conventional security in Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery, vulnerability management and penetration testing have always been important for security but companies do need to plan for unconventional attack scenarios. The presentation focusses on how we start with the  conventional AppSec fundamentals and at the same time scale a small team to keep an eye on every aspect of high flux environments.

What you will take away from this session

  • Application Security is no longer restricted to the conventional OWASP guidelines and organizations continuously need to evolve their practices
  • Developing an AppSec Program from the scratch that not only deals with the conventional threat model but goes much further in understanding the processes, business needs and creating tactics on how to scale security
  • For infrastructures that runs hundreds of micro services and deploys multiple times to production, security can be hard and fun at the same time
  • Learn how companies need to plan for unconventional attack scenarios
