Microsoft’s Michael Howard will be speaking at the OWASP San Antonio meeting tomorrow.
Top Ten Strategies to Secure Your Code
Presented by Michael Howard, Principal Security Program Manager at Microsoft Corp.
Many people think security knowledge is out of their grasp and that such expertise belongs only to the security high-priesthood. First, there is no such thing as a “security high-priesthood”; all software developers should have some security expertise. Second, regardless of the programming languages you use, or the operating systems you deploy on, there are some very simple rules you can follow that will help secure your applications.
Come listen to Michael’s thoughts on how to secure code based on his work with thousands of software developers inside and outside Microsoft. There are, of course, plenty of security war stories!
