Today we talk to Jon McCoy (@thejonmccoy), a developer turned security person. He’s been helping developers learn more about security. We talk about reverse engineering malware and .NET security, as well as a bit of security community, and the mindset to Reverse Engineer.
For this episode, we bring you a recorded version of Chris’s security conference talk from 2016. The talk is entitled “AppSec Awareness, A Blue Print for Security Culture Change”. He covers The Problem Space or why do we need application security, how to create sustainable security culture, and introduce the idea of Application Security Awareness. Chris had the luxury of building such a program while at Cisco, and shares his experiences with the community.
