Financial institutions are under constant pressure to accelerate innovation, leading them to adopt more agile development frameworks and this focus on rapid deployment is often at the expense of security. However, with the odds of a company experiencing a breach being as high as one in four, and with most of the world's major security breaches caused by coding errors allowing hackers to gain more privileges on computer networks, financial institutions have been motivated to act. There is a strong push to reduce their risk at the source, thwarting vulnerable code by developing a strong security mindset among their software developers.
This session will explore:

* Why top financial institutions have changed their approach to software security
* How gamification and real-time metrics can assess, verify and improve the secure coding skills of development teams
* How gamification and real-time metrics can assess, verify and improve the secure coding skills of development teams
*Three innovative and successful case studies that are delivering results, including:
- An innovative program to train and certify software engineers in secure coding skill
- How a “Game of Codes” is building a secure coding future
- A successful rollout of a gamified security program to more than 1000 developers
