The value of developers as Security Champions by Elena Wetter
Cyber Security is now considered a business risk rather than a technology risk by decision makers. The estimated cost of cyber-crime for 2025 exceeds 10 trillion while there is an estimated shortage of 2.72 security professionals globally. Add to the mix ethical considerations, and the intersection of security and coding becomes a burning issue.
So what does this mean for you as developers?
We want to highlight the value of developers as Security Champions, tip you off about the important security issues to look out for, brainstorm and demonstrate what can happen if you don’t.
Panel Discussion about Women in Tech & Security with Elodie Hardat and Sophie Tysebaert
After the break, we'll get personal with a panel of Accenture women in Tech and Security, who in turn will share career experiences, lessons learned and advice that you can hopefully leverage along your career path.
