Securing Your Startup to Secure Big Brands
Startups naturally focus on building functionality as they work towards an MVP on shoe-string budgets. This means that security takes a back seat up until that first client or investor reviews the security of your platform and company. This consistently turns into a panic'd rush to come up with some sort of security-related answers so that your platform doesn't appear completely incompetent and asking for a security breach. This talk will raise common pitfalls with startups in relation to security that are likely to lead to a security breach, and also discuss approaches that can be taken to impress clients and investors by promoting a mature security posture and organisation.
