Security Needs Community
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM

We all need to work together to speed up adoption of application security practices and to encourage (if not mandate) such adoption. There are many challenges ahead for AppSec teams, building a community is the best way to prepare practitioners to face them.

The Purple Book of Software Security is the perfect example of a community coming together to create a critical resource. All organizations can use this as a launching pad for utilizing and developing new tools and frameworks - that not only improve security but also improve and sustain reliability and agility in the software production process. The book is just the beginning of a plan to create a series of go-to resources for software security leaders and practitioners.

This session is all about the power of a community, the Purple Book Community, and how it aims to further the adoption of software security practices and support practitioners in their goals of developing scalable application security programs.

In this session you will learn:

  • How working together as community furthers AppSec adoption
  • Examples of how the community worked together
  • The future of the Purple Book Community
