AppSec roots began with late 90’s vulnerability research and the ultimate technology outsiders, hackers. Microsoft didn’t even want to touch application security until customers threatened to stop buying over the monthly worms of the early 2000’s. Then the threat space changed and attacks weren’t for just done for fun, but done by criminal gangs and nation states. Critical bugs were monetized in the millions of dollars and led to national level security events. In 2021 there is a realization that the security of the software the government purchases has a lot to do with how secure the government is. Now almost every development team needs some AppSec and they want it tightly embedded in their development process. This talk will discuss how we got here and how we need to work as allies with the software development team.
