Pushing Left - How we're all doing it wrong (and how we found a better way in an unexpected place)

Pushing Left is the new hotness in AppSec, but through a chance discussion with a software testing team, we learnt that not only are most companies are getting it wrong but that a much better approach was staring us in the face all alone. What's more, this didn't just apply to AppSec, but to all kinds of security testing, from Pentests to Vulnerability Management, dependency checking to WAF review.

 This 45 mins talk takes you through our journey of turning software test engineers into the first and often strongest line of defence against vulnerabilities and how the Pentesting Industry has some really valuable lessons to learn from software testers.
