Presented by

Peter Robinson, Head of Security at Zip, and Jaap Singh, Co-Founder of Secure Code Warrior

About this talk

We continue to face an enormous shortfall in security-aware developers in the workforce. With cyber threats increasing globally and the recurrence of common vulnerabilities in our code, it’s crucial we obtain the skills to protect the software and critical infrastructure we rely on. Rather than investing in more tools, is upskilling the answer? Hear from Peter Robinson, Head of Security at Zip, and Jaap Singh, Co-Founder of Secure Code Warrior & AppSec Trainer for an insightful discussion on why upskilling cybersecurity skills within the workforce is essential to closing the security gap. Discussion topics include: - How equipped are organisations to upskill their cyber capabilities? - With the rapid transition to remote working and digitalisation, how important have application security become in the cybersecurity mix? - The importance of the human factor and ongoing training to minimise security risks. - Standards and certifications: What to look for when recruiting security- aware professionals.
