From developers, for developers. Join our journey to Application Security. Join us every Wednesday at 16:00 CET April through June.

Application Security Journey for Developers
Join us in this series – every Wednesday – discover more about the area of application security. Learn how to secure your applications and processes, protect your data and mitigate the risks of Fraud and Threats. Build Smart. Build Secure.

As developers and architects, we build applications which solve business problems of our clients and sometimes are the backbone of their business. If these systems are insecure, they can destroy the client’s reputation and result in severe legal consequences. Addressing this issue, the “Application Security for Developers Journey“, is a series of talks and hands-on-sessions in which we will highlight security from the perspectives of architects and developers.
