Veracode Chief Technology Officer, Chris Wysopal, to present at Security BSides London 2011; Jedi Mind Tricks for Building Application Security Programs revealed

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, U.K, -- Veracode, Inc., provider of the world's leading cloud-based application risk management services platform, today announced details of its participation at Security BSides London 2011, held at The Skills Matter eXchange, London, U.K, on Wednesday 20th April.

Chris Wysopal, Chief Technology Officer, Veracode, will be presenting at 10.00am alongside David Rook, Security Analyst, Realex Payments on the subject of 'Jedi mind tricks for building application security programs'.

This session will examine how software serves as the very fabric of how the world communicates and fuels 21st century business. Software is the primary target of criminal hackers who steal and sell information assets on the information black market. With 75% of new attacks (CERT) and 80% of attacks (SANs Top 20) targeting applications, combined with regulatory requirements, it is unsurprising application security has risen to the top of security professionals agendas.

From the perspective of both an employee of a financial transaction provider and a security vendor, this session will focus on how to effectively sell the business value of application security to executives, middle management, and development groups. David Rook and Chris Wysopal will share how they have successfully obtained the resources necessary for an effective application security programme where others have failed.

BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members.
