We live within a data driven, technology enabled, software-controlled world. Every aspect of business today is driven by software. The information that defines our wealth, our health, and our happiness is managed by software. Every line of that software is designed, coded, and delivered – mostly by humans, but increasingly by software that was also designed by humans. How that software is designed, how it is tested, how it is delivered, and how it is maintained in working order is very important. How that software is kept secure is more important.
The only problem here is that design, test and delivery are all ordered by the customer who needs the software. They are part of the specification. Security is not usually part of the design, and hence often not included in the specification.
Sometimes it is deliberately left off simply because of cost.
This Masterclass will explain why the concept of Secure by Design is not only relevant to our current world, but why it makes business sense at all levels, and why those that master Secure by Design principles will remain in demand. We will go over the principles and practice of secure by design, from explaining the business foundation for security, and showing how these principles not only build better software, they enable faster more reliable code, and actually reduce the lifecycle cost of any software or application based product or service. We will further explain how these principles not only improve your reputation as a developer, help you to build and manage more productive development teams, improve the quality of products that you work on, and make sure that the privacy and information of the customers of those products are all kept safer, more secure and accurate at the same time.
