As a software developer you strive to build quality and deliver innovation to the market. Regardless of the technology and tools you rely on, you must meet product specifications and requirements that often involve aggressive testing cycles and timelines. Also with the growing number of security breaches that are linked to vulnerabilities found in software, it is becoming more important to think about cybersecurity during the entire software development lifecycle. Even a base level of knowledge about secure coding practices can give you a competitive advantage to help you meet the growing demands of the market without compromising quality and innovation.

Join one of our own developers, Pete Chestna of Veracode as he shares his experiences and perspectives on integrating security into the software development lifecycle – meeting customer needs for increased security and innovating along the way. As a certified scrum master and scrum product owner, Pete joined Veracode as a platform developer and was instrumental in delivering the first version of Veracode’s application security service to customers. Later, as Director of Platform Engineering, Pete managed the Agile teams responsible for delivering Veracode’s SaaS platform and built the first DevOps team. Today he provides customers with practical advice on how to successfully roll out developer-centric application security programs.
