With the rapid evolution of cloud computing, mobile devices and other technologies, user data has become increasingly dependent on the security of software. The amount and types of data available for collection, analysis and dissemination have increased the importance of reducing the risk associated with protecting data.
The second annual Security Development Conference will bring together some of the best and brightest information security professionals from a variety of industries. Attendees will learn about proven security development practices through interactions with peers, industry luminaries and other organizations.
Sessions will cover the latest in security development techniques and processes that can reduce risk and help protect organizations in this rapidly evolving technology landscape.
We look forward to seeing you at the Security Development Conference 2013 in San Francisco, CA!
Hear what some of last year's attendees had to say about secure development and the importance to the industry:
"Even understanding that there are a lot of companies and government organizations that are moving to adopt development practices helps to encourage folks, helps them to understand how to succeed."
Steve Lipner, Partner Director of Program Management
Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft Corporation
"The Security Development Conference is a chance for people to compare notes. People in the software development companies and people in the critical infrastructures can meet to compare notes about how the SDL process works in their company."
Richard Clarke, Chairman, Good Harbor Consulting, LLC
& Former Special Advisor to the President for Cyber Security
"Bringing in Michael Hayden I thought was particularly interesting… Openly discussing what he sees as the new threats, new ways we'll deal with it and really intersecting that with the politics of this, which we can't under estimate."
Caleb Barlow, Application, Data, Mobile Security, IBM
"Everyone has the same problems but security is one of those things people don't like to talk about… Taking a venue like this where we are all stuck in the same life raft that it opens people up a little bit and we're not quite as afraid to discuss with one another some of the challenges we have and problems we see."
Josh Bressers, Software Engineer, Red Hat
