What: Building Secure Software Takes a Champion

There may not be one single recipe for a successful product security program, but SAFECode members find that the most tried and true recipes do share many common ingredients. One of those ingredients is the use of security champions (SCs). An SC is a member of the development team uniquely empowered to support SDL execution and security activities on a daily basis. This session will provide guidance on how to build and sustain a successful SC program based on the real-world experiences of SAFECode members. These insights will be of interest to anyone working to build a more security-supportive culture within their development organizations, whether they’ve already established, are considering one, or are hearing about it for the first time.
