Security consultant Jared Pfost with Caliber Security will present on “*Why
and how to build an application security metrics program”*.

We’ll share a case study constructing a metrics program for secure software
development. We’ll provide examples to help answer:

    - Why measure security in development?

    - What do we measure?

    - What does success look like?

    - What's defferent in agile vs waterfall?

 We’ll also provide examples how to communicate performance data,
incorporate feedback loops, and ultimately help leadership improve their
cost-benefit decisions on security investments. The result of the session
will be a set of specific tasks to measure security and a process to decide
if you should do them.
