Jim Manico once stated, "Software developers are security engineers, whether they know it, admit it, or like it.". But how does software engineering become security engineering? How does the software development lifecycle (SDLC) become secure?

This session will dive into the meaning of a secure SDLC, covering its various aspects, challenges, and pitfalls. We also explore how to hit the mark on that delicate trade-off between developer velocity and security assurance. You will walk away with actionable guidance on building and implementing a high value AppSec program.
