AgileSoCal Meeting - Wednesday, August 28th 6:00 PM

Elevate Security Conversations with the Elevation of Privilege Card Game with William Getz

When: Wednesday, August 28th
Networking and food, 6:00 PM.
Activities start, 6:30 PM.

Identifying risks to our business and customers inherent in our applications is more important now than it has ever been. The average cost of a data breach in 2018 was between 2.2 and 6.9 million dollars, not including the loss of customers, reputation, and goodwill. How do we start the application security discussion within our organization, especially when each department “speaks a different language”?

We use the "Elevation of Privilege" card game.

With a model of the system we are working on, this serious game allows us to facilitate a low stakes discussion focusing on identifying and overcoming security challenges our applications face. We can add them to our tracking solution of choice and prioritize the fixes during sprint planning.

Your Presenter:

William Getz is a security champion and software developer experienced with both .NET and NodeJS. He attends OWASP conferences to gain knowledge about security practices and brings them back to his team. He has influenced the team into adding a “Security Check” step before a feature or bug fix is declared completed.

For the required security training during a developer's on-boarding he encourages the use of an application called “Juice Shop”, one of OWASP’s flagship projects purposely written to be insecure, as a tool gain experience surrounding the exploits used by attackers to better protect customers and reduce company to risk.
William is actively engaging in cross department security discussions, sharing and receiving knowledge and tools to help reduce security risks.

You can connect with William Getz on LinkedIn, or via Twitter at @GetzTweetz.
