Welcome to the brand new DevelopSec website. The goal of this site is to provide useful information for IT professionals to help develop better security practices. All too often, we see that there are professionals that are working very hard to create great products, but do not have the security information they need. Breaches are happening every day and many wonder why it matters. We hope to make an impact and show how we can learn from the breaches or other security incidents that occur so frequently.
The site is focused on helping the less security savvy professionals, the developers and testers and line of business. The intent is to provide valuable information without a lot of extra fluff. The site, while still under some construction, will consist of a few different resources. Over the past year, the DevelopSec podcast has been alive and well received. The podcast consists of 10-20 minutes of thoughts on different security topics. Thank you to all of you that have listened so far.
In addition, there will be a news section that looks at some of the incidents/breaches we see showing up in the news. There are a lot of places to get the news, and our goal is not to just share news stories. We want to go the extra mile and provide thoughts on how the situation in the news could effect you. Whether that means just some tips on how you might be able to reduce your risk of the same incident or a more detailed summary to provide a better understanding of the real risks.
Another section will be discussions on secure topics that will hopefully be beneficial to our target audience. Here is looking at what might evolve out of this new year in 2015.
