Agile continues to be the most adopted software development methodology among organizations worldwide, but it generally hasn't integrated well with traditional security management techniques. And most security professionals aren’t up to speed in their understanding and experience of agile development. To help bridge the divide between these two worlds, this practical guide introduces several security tools and techniques adapted specifically to integrate with agile development. Mixing hands on exercises, stories and discussion, this workshop uses real world examples and experiences to tackle the realities of security at speed problems t, and how we can work to solve them.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Add security practices to each stage of your existing development lifecycle
  • Integrate security with planning, requirements, design, and at the code level
  • Include security testing as part of your team’s effort to deliver working software in each release
  • Implement regulatory compliance in an agile or DevOps environment
  • Build an effective security program through a culture of empathy, openness, transparency, and collaboration

Suitable for developers, business analysts, software development leads and security professionals operating in or working towards an agile software development lifecycle.
