Please join us on Friday, July 23rd, 2021 for CISO Series Video Chat “Hacking Code: An hour of critical thinking on avoiding self-harming code.”
Before a developer compiles their code, they may unknowingly be participating in unsafe coding practices. If you don’t do static code analysis and even searches for embedded secrets like credentials, these small issues can blossom into a good ‘ole fashioned breach. Let’s have a discussion about what are issues we can and should deal with as early as possible in the development process.
Joining me for this discussion will be:
- Mackenzie Jackson (@advocatemack), developer advocate, GitGuardian
- DJ Schleen (@djschleen), director of DevSecOps, VillageMD
In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:
- What are the common mistakes that are being made in private code?
- How wary do you need to be about public code repositories?
- What can a developer be trained on? What requires a security person’s involvement?
- What can static scanning tools fail to uncover?
- How much security should the developer need to know? Developers are required to know so much. What should a developer’s responsibility be? Is there a shared responsibility model between developer and security team?
It all starts at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. At the end of the hour [11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern] we’ll switch gears into a series of impromptu 1-on-1 five-minute meetings where everyone will be randomly paired. Nothing to prepare, we’ll do the matching.
