Security is not just an infrastructure issue anymore. Engineers and managers need to be diligent about incorporating best practices into the Software Development Life Cycle. In this panel discussion, the focus will be on how to effectively incorporate security into software engineering and how to manage teams to make sure they are developing secure code. We'll also discuss how to protect yourself from social engineering and other ways to hack your secure systems outside of your code. The panel contains a variety of experts across different industries that can share first-hand experience and knowledge about what you can do to make sure your team/department/company is doing what is necessary to protect against outside threats.
