Event Details

Presentation Overview

Gone are the days when breaches were rare and security could safely be put low on the priority list; product security is now a customer demand and cyber crime has reached epic proportions. Our idolization of hackers, penetration testing and ‘breaking’ has not resulted in secure software for our industry, only egos, stereotypes and unaffordable security models. Modern application security approaches need to address both offensive (red team) and defensive (blue team) approaches, as well as continuous learning and advocacy for developers. This means Purple Team. This talk will explore how to combine defence, offence, automation, empathy and continuous learning, all without the requirement of ever wearing a hoodie. The future of security is PURPLE.



Tanya Janca is the co-founder and CEO of Security Sidekick. Her obsession with securing software runs deep, from starting her company, to running her own OWASP chapter for 4 years and founding the OWASP DevSlop open-source and education project. With her countless blog articles, workshops and talks, her focus is clear. Tanya is also an advocate for diversity and inclusion, co-founding the international women’s organization WoSEC, starting the online #MentoringMonday initiative, and personally mentoring, advocating for and enabling countless other women in her field. As a professional computer geek of 20+ years, she is a person who is truly fascinated by the ‘science’ of computer science.



This event features the well-known Union Club Christmas Luncheon Buffet and is open to both ISACA Victoria Chapter members and non-members. Due to the gracious contributions from our sponsors, we are able to offer members subsidized pricing of $30, a savings of $25 from the non-member price.
