How security affects the people behind the code

This page contains the resources for the talk titled 'How security affects the people behind the code'.

Abstract

Not a week goes by without a breaking story on a major software security incident. Most of us shrug off the incident, often forgetting that these incidents have a deep impact on the people behind the code. Judging and shaming are easy, but how often do you really think about the story behind an incident?

This keynote reflects on several real-life security incidents and their impact on the people behind the code. From each incident, we will extract lessons learned and translate them into best practices for building secure software. These best practices are easy to comprehend, but they might be challenging to follow.
