Software, Security, and the Public Good

45 minute beginner seminar


As engineers, out first and most important obligation is to serve the public good. The code that we write, impenetrable to most outside our industry, is finding its way deeper and deeper into peoples' every day lives. We simply must create software that safeguards the public's trust, to the best of our abilities, yet for most us, security is an afterthought. In this session, we'll learn to think like hackers while we learn how to mitigate harm and build applications that are safer and more resilient to attack.
