Sam Barfoot, Office of the CISO, Checkmarx

Digital transformation is still a top priority for C-suites and boards around the world, creating an opportunity to reframe the role of the CISO to secure that transformation. This positioning offers a chance for greater alignment between security, development, and the rest of the business – and AppSec has a major role to play in aligning these interests.

  • Developer Experience: Case studies on improving developer experience and engagement to maximise the value of AppSec
  • Leadership Buy In: How to translate the value of AppSec to management and the board to increase investment in security transformation
