I had the privilege to attend the first ever Breezy Dev Conference as a speaker. 150 software developers and architects gathered to learn and discuss all about software development. Thank you Mirka, Gambit, and everyone for the amazing event!
My topic of the day was Security by and for developers. Here are the main points for you in case you missed the conference.
Each of these threats are very relevant in software development since the business assets exist almost solely in the digital world. In the worst-case scenario, a software company’s whole business can be lost because of one single cyber incident.
Software developers and architects often approach security from a technical angle. Technical security capabilities are important in a development environment, but it’s still the people who make the difference in security.
My recommendation for all development teams is to create a security culture right from the start rather than for example buying a one-size-fits-all cyber solution in your environment.
One speech at Breezy Dev Conf started with the classic words: “Developers, developers, developers…”. I share the same message.
Cyber security needs you, developer! Only you can build your software more secure.
