Coverity at DevBeat 2013: Developer-First Security

Nov 04, 2013, 09:00 ET from Coverity, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, Inc., the leader in development testing, today announced that co-founder and chief technology officer Andy Chou will present at DevBeat 2013:

What: "Developer-First Security"
When: Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 2:40 PM PDT
Where: Regency Center, San Francisco

Few developers pay attention to security, in spite of the unstoppable tide of security defects in code. With big money being spent by governments to buy bugs, and exploits becoming a new class of weapon in the arsenal of militaries around the world, it is high time that developers pay attention.

Chou's talk will cover a model for how developers can begin to think about security, including some of the most common types of weaknesses that are still plaguing our applications and what to do about them. He will also explain why developers need to begin to "own security" to make a dent in the security problems we face today.
