Developing secure code is the most effective method of securing web applications. In addition, application security risks need to be measured to ensure they are aligned with the risk appetite of an organisation.
This results in more stable and robust applications and helps protect an organisations brand. However, the ability to develop and measure this code takes additional skill and know-how which traditionally has not commonly formed part of many computer science curricula.
Furthermore, the majority of organisations have not focused on instituting a culture that includes application security as a core part of their software development life cycle.
This presentation will cover some OWASP tools & processes that will not only help organisations improve the security of their code, but also assist auditors measuring the security of those web applications.
