How can developers deliver more secure applications? What are the security techniques they can use while writing the software?
This presentation will discuss the proactive controls that will guide developers down the path of secure software. It will explore the security techniques that can be incorporated in software development life cycle and will provide real world examples on how to solve some of the most prevalent security problems on the internet.
