Why can't developers make it secure?
Julia Potapenko

Have you ever seen a situation when the company hires highly skilled software developers, but the resulting product fails security review completely? In my talk, I raise the problem of shared responsibility, the importance of communication, and following the processes. The audience will learn the iterative process of building a secure architecture and how it's different from secure coding.
