Security and Agility by John Downey

Recorded June 03, 2014 at ChicagoRuby Downtown

Startups live and breath by their ability to operate with agility. This is sometimes at odds with the world of security where preparation and planning can go a long way. Many startup developers and CTOs fall into the trap of thinking about security when it is already too late. In this presentation we are going to cover some of the things your tech company may not have thought of yet, such as: • Where to turn during a DDoS attack • Handling security vulnerability announcements • How to setup and run a bug bounty • Ways to harden code from the start
