📣 We are thrilled to announce that, within the Web and Internet Security class, Cybersecurity master, Radu Farcaș, Senior Director of Engineering at Snyk, will be delivering an invited lecture titled:

Developer First Security

When: Wednesday, June 5th, 2024, 14:00
Where: Room 335, FSEGA Campus

Developer-first security has gained significant traction in recent years, reflecting a paradigm shift in how organizations approach cybersecurity. This approach integrates security practices directly into the development process, emphasizing the need for developers to take ownership of security from the outset.

The rise of DevSecOps culture further supports this by fostering collaboration between development, security, and operations teams. Despite these advances, challenges remain, including the need for better education and training for developers on secure coding practices and integrating security into agile and CI/CD workflows without slowing down delivery.

As Senior Director of Engineering at Snyk, Radu Farcaș is an accomplished senior leader with expertise in managing teams responsible for delivering large-scale enterprise solutions for data management, network management, and cloud-native software solutions.

During his talk, he will share valuable insights on today’s security state and how that starts with developers firsthand. Snyk’s expertise has many examples of how this kind of responsibility and control can be in your hands as developers.

Don’t miss this chance to learn from an industry expert like Radu Farcaș! Mark your calendars and join us for a knowledge-packed session on building secure applications starting with you, the developer. 🛡️💻
