We're pleased to announce that we're sponsoring DevSecCon and MWR's Nick Jones will be presenting this year.

Event Description

DevSecCon brings together key figures from both the DevOps and SecOps world to showcase how these two core competencies can align to improve the overall quality of software and project delivery. The conference aims to share those insights and experiences to help our attendees challenge the status quo in their organizations and radically rethink their approach to secure development and delivery.

The event is run by practitioners, for practitioners. With keynote presentations from industry experts, plus panel discussions and hands-on workshops, attendees will receive thought-provoking insights as well as actionable tips and best practices.

We look forward to welcoming you at the event this year as we continue on our journey to make software delivery more secure, without compromise.

We will be running a challenge on the day so visit our stand for your chance to win an Anki Overdrive Starter Kit!

Challenge Overview:

Acererak’s Challenge

In the year 2020 the followers of the most disliked daily newspaper, The Interrogator, managed to convince the Government to ban all forms of video gaming. Gamers had begun playing games of Frogger on the M4, whilst wearing the latest Oculus Rift 3. It had not ended well. The sadness and outrage was felt far and wide, leaving The Interrogator little to do but claim victory in its war against all modern entertainment.

It is now the year 2044, and rumors are spreading of a hidden code, set into the ban by a civil servant who had a love for classic video gaming. Whispers have been heard in the underground arcades that clues had been hidden in pictures and paintings created to remind us all of the great video games of the past.

It is believed that once the final word is found the law can be repealed and video games can once again be enjoyed by all. Are you that gamer, the one that can return video games to the masses? Are you the modern day Mario, saving us all from The Interrogator Bowser?

Talk presented by MWR

  • Time: 17:30:00
  • Room: CTRL ROOM
  • Topic: Static Analysis for Code and Infrastructure
  • Speakers: Nick Jones
  • Description: Many will likely have seen or used static analysis tools in the past, but they're often poorly understood. This talk covers the theory behind a number of the techniques commonly used to analyze applications, including taint checking and analysis of control flow graphs and field initializations.

    After covering the benefits and pitfalls that these techniques bring to the table, it then goes on to address how to best fit these tools into your development environment and infrastructure, demonstrate how to catch software bugs early in your development cycle and how analysis may be applied to infrastructure as code definitions.
