- 10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.: Application security basics presented by John Saboe, open source enterprise architect
Application Security is more important than ever, but as enterprise architectures grow in size and complexity it continues to increase in relevance, making process and standards more important than ever. John Saboe got his start in application security from a developer perspective and has continued to be an advocate for building architectures the right way – including security concerns from the start – throughout his career. John will cover application security basics, demystifying some of the common terminology and standards, and introduce resources for further learning. He will also discuss examples from his own experiences as an application security consultant, as a developer, supporting architectures, and designing new architectures with security in mind.
- 2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.: How to keep developers happy and lawyers calm presented by Rod Cope, CTO
The initial step in helping make sure teams are in compliance with open source licenses is education. Attendees can expect to learn how to educate developers and managers on the differences between copyleft and permissive licenses, the inherent risks associated with non-compliance, and see real examples of how licensing risks are introduced into organizations and their consequences. The goal is to provide concrete steps towards development teams adopting a vested interest in paying attention to what open source they download and how it’s used.
