November 2006 Meeting - Computing Security Overview

Let's admit it: the majority of application development projects address security last or when something has gone wrong. Current software development practices and methodologies pay little attention to security or does not mention it at all in the development cycle. However, secure computing is becoming critical with the almost ubiquitous rise of connected devices from laptops, cellphones to game consoles.

At the next Tampa Java User Group meeting, speaker John Collins will provide a comprehensive overview of computing security. Topics will include:

  • An overview of industry and security trends

  • A definition of terms to be used

  • Demonstrations of specific software exploits and countermeasures

  • Reflection on organizational paradigms that fuel unsecured software development

  • Recommended changes to the software development process that can lead to more secure code releases and less corporate liability
