Nine (9) Ways I Can Hack Your Next Project

By the end of this talk, everyone in the room will be a CyberSecurity warrior. Sean will explain how to think like an attacker about your next project. From incorporating security intelligently into Agile methodologies, thinking about security in a DevOps world, secret hacks, and getting into the mindset of a researcher in a bug bounty program, you will be able to envision where your project can go wrong and how to get rid of the badness. Let's manage some risk!

We will use real life scenarios to drive the conversation, and we’ll make sure to have fun along the way (including calling out the one phrase in this abstract security people never want you to say).
