Areas of Focus
AppSec Day has a diverse and passionate audience of technology and security professionals at all skill levels. Generally speaking we like talks that would benefit someone who builds (or is responsible for securing) an end to end software product. We prefer talks that are going to help attendees defend (defensive) the software products they are building. However we also see value in talks that teach attendees how to "think like a hacker" (offensive), as that will allow them to test and review their applications and environments with a hacker's mindset.

In other words, we like talks within but not limited to the following focus areas.

+ Secure Software Development Lifecycle - Integrating security into the software development lifecycle.
+ Secure Coding - Secure code principles and code review techniques.
+ Security Architecture - Architecting applications to be secure by design.
+ Web Application Security - Offensive security testing and defensive security controls.
+ DevSecOps - Integrating security into DevOps processes, architectures, tools and people.
+ Blue team - Prevention and detection of security issues within production software environments.
+ Cloud Security - Design, deploy and operate applications securely in cloud environments.
+ Mobile Application Security - Security of mobile applications, frameworks and services.
+ API security - Integrating security into a small, a medium or a large microservices architecture.

When selecting the talks for AppSec Day, a part from the talk details and presenters skills, we also consider the following:

+ Do we have a balanced selection of technical talks (Introductory to Expert)?
+ Are we including presenters from diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives?
