Ed TALKS: Back to Basics: The Imp. of Security Principles in Technical Roles

Presented by

Ed Adams, Security Innovation | Joshua Corman, I Am The Cavalry | Uma Chandrashekhar, Alcon | Mark Merkow, Univ. of Denver

About this talk

Principle-based approaches have long been at the core of “traditional” engineering disciplines. However, when it comes to building software and IT systems, best practices around encryption, access control, and authorization are often lackluster. The ability to understand and apply security concepts is essential to protecting today’s digital business. Join host Ed Adams, a Ponemon Institute research fellow, for a panel discussion with security professionals whose collective experience spans Fortune 500 technology, financial services, and medical device industries. JOSHUA CORMAN Founder of I Am the Cavalry (dot org). His approach to security in the context of human factors, adversary motivations, and social impact has helped position him as one of the most trusted names in security. UMA CHANDRASHEKHAR Leader of the Global Information Product Security function at Alcon. She holds several patents in information security, privacy, and reliability and was an invited council member of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s Security, Reliability, and Interoperability Council (CSRIC). MARK MERKOW CISSP, CISM, CSSLP. A prolific author and advocate for building security into the SDLC with software-quality and security activities, tools, processes, and education. Topics to be discussed: * Why and for whom are security principles important? * Have principles become a lost art form, or did they never really take off? * What is the most underutilized principle? Does it vary based on tech stack and deployment? FREE GIVEAWAY We'll also be raffling off three copies of Mark Merkow's latest book "Secure, Resilient, and Agile Software Development" during the webinar.
