Information security consultancy MWR InfoSecurity today outlined details of its DevSecCon workshop – Android Security Within the Development Lifecycle. The session will provide an insight into common security flaws seen in Android applications, and offers a view toward automation methods which may be used to prevent vulnerabilities going to market. DevSecCon is a one day event, with seminars, workshops and open sessions, aiming to initiate a culture change in IT to deliver integrated, continuously secure solutions to the business.
Speaking about MWR’s support, DevSecCon organiser – Francois Raynaud, said: “DevSecCon is pleased to announce MWR InfoSecurity as our sponsor for the after-party drinks and will also run workshops covering mobile and web hacking.”
MWR’s technical director – Martyn Ruks, added, “Bringing together DevOps and SecOps practitioners in a collaborative environment is a natural progression, and I think will make for a very interesting discussion. Integrating security from the outset is vital and that means both practitioners understand either other’s viewpoint and working together effectively. For that reason, events like DevSecCon, are not only a welcome introduction to the security calendar, but vital in a world where everyone is responsible for security.”
DevSecCon is a newly formed, non-profit conference for DevOps and SecOps practitioners, run by practitioners. By creating a neutral platform, it will exchange and create new ideas on how to leverage the best of both worlds and adopt a new mind-set of inclusiveness and collaboration. The one day event takes place on Thursday, 22 October Skills Matter CodeNode, 10 South Place
London EC2M 2RB.
In addition to its workshop, MWR Infosecurity is sponsoring a networking drinks reception at the end of the day.
