A huge echo to this one:

Security test automation with OWASP ZAP and Zest scripting language

And follow the same line with

*         Security Unit testing with Selenium

*         Effective static code analysis tools

If someone would like a topic done on, "Conducting lightweight threat modeling" I just presented at ISACA NE about using the OCTAVE Allegro framework to do a risk assessment. I could make some minor modifications and highlight the threat modelling aspects. Slides are here<https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz9j_qHxxTNiN3lpeU1Oa2tBTFE/edit?usp=sharing>

Personally, one of the biggest challenges in this industry it's training front line developers in security awareness. Then, making that knowledge embedded as part of their daily development mantra. I would love a conversation on thoughts, ideas, and/or successful use cases to make this possible.
