Declan O’Riordan discusses “The Security Development Lifecycle” at the 4th Intelligent Testing Conference on June 18th.Application Security is about much more than automated code vulnerability scanning and some penetration testing.

The secure development lifecycle begins by reviewing your project framework and ends when the system is decommissioned and all data deleted. There is no reason Agile or DevOps projects should be less secure than ‘V’ model or Iterative projects, provided the thinking about how to include appropriate security efforts starts at the beginning of the process and is built into the whole SDLC.

Declan will focus on three main points

  • Identify the drivers for applying security.
  • Appreciate the asymmetric economics of cyber-security, both negative and positive.
  • View the full panorama of the security development lifecycle and where you fit in.
