Applications are only as secure as the network architecture and operating systems in which they operate. It is only a matter of time before services, networks, or applications are targeted by bad actors even if they are not directly exposed to the public Internet. In this seminar we will discuss some of the patterns seen in secure application development and the anti-patterns that should be avoided. Then we will examine how to best implement these practices both as an individual and within organizations throughout the software development lifecycle.
