Cybersecurity is often seen by fast-moving organisations as an expensive obstacle to innovation. The drive to keep up with the unrelenting pace of business can mean that secure coding is pushed to the backburner, with security managers stressed and stretched across too many developers. In addition, most of the budget is spent on finding and fixing problems after the code has been written.
Apart from the antipathy caused by such negative focus on pointing out every perceived and real flaw, this process is up to thirty times more expensive than if the code was secured from the beginning.

- How to make security training relevant and engaging for developers
- How to teach developers to identify and fix their own issues
- How to help developers securely construct their own code
