Securing Modern Software

Software is leading a revolution around the world. Every industry has software at its heart, from transport to finance and health, helping improve outcomes for our people, businesses, and communities.

If this new technology is to achieve its lofty goals, it must be reliable, scalable, and secure.  With such a big challenge ahead of us, it is more important than ever that our entire software community is part of this mission.

In this track, we will explore where innovation meets cyber security and how we can bring security into our definitions of software quality - taking ownership of keeping our data, people, and systems safe from within the development team.
