The number of security incidents and data breaches are increasing. It feels like not a week goes by without hearing of another breach or compromise. Are we getting worse at doing security? In this talk, Edwin will provide his opinion on this, from an application security perspective, by taking a look at how software development has changed over the years. As we move towards Cloud Native workloads, staying secure is harder, and it is not always the developers' fault.
Edwin Kwan is a DevSecOps advocate and strong believer in having a developer focused approach towards embedding security into the software development life cycle. Trained as a software engineer, he transitioned into security seven years ago and now heads up the application security and security advisory teams at an Australian financial services company.
