OWASP Event with @SecurityNinja


OWASP Dublin chapter event this month hears David Rook @SecurityNinja of Realex Payments present their unique Application Security Story.


David says, “As the old British Telecom adverts used to say “it’s good to talk” I thought now was a good time to talk about how we do application security at Realex Payments. Rather than just talk about where we are today this talk will focus on the lessons learned over the past five years and what I’d do differently if I could it all again!


I will tell the story of how application security has worked and evolved in a fast growing technology company from the day we created our first application security role in the business to our current application security approach.

The story will include how we scaled application security to keep up with the changes in a fast growing business, how playing card games with developers was one of the best things we’ve ever done and how following the KISS principle in the early days of an application security program is vital. You will see how we have progressed from having no dedicated application security resources to our current staffing levels and how our goals have evolved from simply security reviewing our applications to more grand goals such as wanting to provide free application security training for anyone in Ireland.”


He concludes, “This isn’t an application security talk focusing on the theory and approaches that seem good on paper. You will have the opportunity to learn the lessons from five years of real world application security from the person who was at the centre of application security in Realex Payments.”


Doors open 6:30pm with automatic entry only for people who have pre-registered.
