The annual RSA Conference is coming up, February 13-17, in San Francisco. If you'll be attending, you might like to attend Dave Farrow's session on successful security training.
The RSA Conference helps attendees connect with each other and get more information on the latest cyber threats. There are annual conferences in the US as well as in the EMEA and APJ regions. They also have digital sessions to help those who can't make it to the conferences.
The 2017 theme is ‘The Power of Opportunity.' Linda Gray, the Director and GM of the RSA Conference explains it like this:
… “In the beginner’s mind, there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind, there are few.” We know that when we remove the boundaries of what can and can’t be done, we open ourselves to new opportunities.
… RSA Conference is the place to embrace the opportunities in front of us from every standpoint, including professional development, moving the industry forward, and uniting as a community.
One of the sessions that fits perfectly with this theme is Dave Farrow's session, From Boot-to-Root: A Method for Successful Security Training. Dave is our Senior Director of Information Security, and is one of this blogger's go-to guys for security questions from the simple to the very complex. Dave's RSA session will help developers understand how the bad guys see code as opportunity:
With much of the engineering focus centered on rapidly delivering new features, how can you get mindshare with developers and encourage secure code? This talk will examine a hands-on secure development training program that can be applied at any organization. Powered by security gaming concepts such as boot2root and CTF exercises, developers are taught to “see through the eyes” of the adversary.
Dave's session takes place on February 15, 2017. You can get all the details and reserve a seat here.Join Dave Farrow, Sr Director, Information Security, at the RSA Conference for a session on successful security training. Click To Tweet
