MWR to Discuss Static Analysis for Code and Infrastructure at DevSecCon

MWR has confirmed details of its DevSecCon involvement – a session titled Static Analysis for Code and Infrastructure, a cunning challenge plus sponsoring the post-event drinks.

Now in its second year, DevSecCon is a one day event, with seminars, workshops and open sessions, aiming to initiate a culture change in IT to deliver integrated, continuously secure solutions to the business.

Nick Jones – Security Consultant at  MWR explained: “While many will have seen or used static analysis tools in the past, they are often poorly understood. I’m planning to make it all a bit clearer by covering 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.”

Speaking about MWR’s further involvement, Associate Director, David Hartley, said: “We were sponsors of the inaugural DevSecCon last year, which was a great success, and we’re delighted to be involved again this year. In addition to Nick’s session, we’ve stepped our involvement up a level by also devising a devious puzzle for attendees to tackle. Titled Acererak’s Challenge, and set in 2044, the premise is that the Government banned all forms of video gaming in 2020. The quest asks for a modern day Mario to save the day and return video games to the masses.”

In addition to its talk and challenge, MWR is also sponsoring a networking drinks reception at the end of the day.

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 attendees challenge the status quo in their organizations and radically rethink their approach to secure development and delivery.
