Security often isn’t the top priority for many developers, who already are juggling multiple projects and deadlines. In fact, security seems to get in the way of keeping up with the pace of business. However, developers control a critical piece of the security puzzle and need to be engaged in the security cause—no longer can they stand by and say the responsibility for security lies in the hands of the security team. Rather, security must be built-in from the start.

In this webinar, Secure Code Warrior CTO Matias Madou will look at what we as security professionals have been doing wrong and how agile, DevSecOps and DevOps are changing the role of the developer. Madou will discuss current best practices and ways in which they often fall short of the goal of building in security from the start, and will share new methodologies being deployed at multiple global organizations that make developers want to be part of the solution. 

Madou will be joined by Alexandre Pluvinage, head of Cybersecurity and Fraud Awareness at ING Belgium and ING BD Netherlands, who will discuss how his team engaged developers to think with a security mindset and how they rolled out a security program for developers, and share the results of the program to date.
