We’re going to take a look at how we used to measure the security maturity of the software that development teams delivered.

There have been significant improvements in the information and tooling available recently, some new standards are emerging and starting to reflect this also.

In this talk Kim will: Revisit the past, what we as development teams had in our infosec arsenal, how confusing it was and how much manual work we were expected to do to measure up. A detailed look at what we have today, and what the future looks like as a software development team with security as a priority.
