Panel Discussion: Don’t Bug Me to Death – Both Literally and Figuratively

Panel of Experts from Darktrace, Forrester, & Parasoft
As the world around us goes through digital transformation, the footprint of software grows enormously. Increasing the footprint of software expands the attack surface that puts us all at risk of cyberattacks. While some cyberattacks are a nuisance to deal with, others can be fatal, if not life-threatening. More features mean more code. More code means more problems. Unfortunately, the practice of software minimalism has gone by the wayside to supersized software systems loaded with a ton of features and functionality.  
 
In this talk, we'll cover the importance of software security and engineering in providing cyber resiliency to combat and withstand cyberattacks. We'll share key best practices, lessons learned, pitfalls, and forward-leaning approaches to bring greater awareness for better software quality and security. "Don’t Bug Me to Death" signifies the importance of building better software systems that are intrinsically safer and more secure with better quality.   
 
We’ll discuss: 
  • Strategies to help organizations reduce the attack surface in software.
  • Lessons from the past to help shape a safer and more secure world.
  • Innovative approaches to securing our software future.

Testing at the Speed of DevOps

Joint Presentation from Lattix and Parasoft
Building better software at speed presents a conundrum: How to deliver high-quality software at speed. It's a challenge to satisfy functional safety compliance to standards like IEC 61508, ISO 26262, IEC 62304, DO-178C, IEC 62443, ISO 21434, and others. On top of that is the pressure that most of the industry feels to deliver better software, faster.   
 
Automation is key to driving through quality gates efficiently—especially through bottleneck phases like testing and documentation. Architecture also plays an important role helping with test case prioritization, change based testing, impact analysis, and gap analysis. 
 
If your code is spaghetti topped with bad dependencies, then it will negatively impact both build and test, creating technical debt. However, putting solutions in place at T0/T1 creates technical wealth by building it right the first time with software components that teams can be proud of and contribute to the asset library of the company.  
 
In this session you'll learn: 
  • How to implement a DevOps pipeline to build, analyze, test, document, and deploy. 
  • Where unit testing and static analysis fit into DevOps. 
  • What is time zero (developer desktop) deployment? 
  • What is time one (system level, gated check-in with Git at branch level)?
