BuildSecurityIn: Building security in everything we do

15th October, 2022

About The Event

SecConf, conducted by Thoughtworks aims to provide a platform to build a strong global community where security and development can come together. The platform encourages various offensive and defensive security personas to discuss best security practices that face today’s modern application ecosystems. Technology is evolving fast and so are the vulnerabilities. Insecure components and supply chains are an existential threat to the industry. We seek to provide cutting edge information so you can assess your environments while building robust & secure products. We believe it's a collaboration of community and opportunity that will create a powerful impact.
