2019 San Francisco Symposium
How to Mature Your Application Security Program


Wednesday, February 6, 2019 | 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Morton's The Steakhouse, 400 Post Street, San Francisco, CA

Fortune 1000 companies face a myriad of challenges when it comes to application security. They don’t know how to run an effective bug bounty program. They don’t know whether to do manual or automated web app pen testing or go with a more hybrid approach. And they spin up containers quickly, setting them loose with no security due diligence.

Practitioners want to know when bug bounty programs translate into cost savings and what maturity level they should be at before taking such a challenge in-house. They want to know how to securely use containers. And they want to know about more advanced techniques to test app security.

In this 5-hour symposium, IANS Faculty Member Shannon Lietz will help address those issues and send attendees home with fresh solutions that include:

  • A process they can use to measure their organization’s maturity level for in-house bug bounty programs
  • A thorough inventory of third-party bug bounty vendors and a list of questions to help determine which one is best for them
  • A list of tools for hybrid testing


Participants will leave knowing how to launch a bug bounty program and pursue hybrid web app testing, and will have a clearer understanding of what goes into container security.


Anyone responsible for app security in their organizations. The topics will be accessible to relative newcomers but will be most useful to those who are already well on their way to surfacing and addressing the challenges..

This event is for IANS clients and invited guests — there is no vendor sponsorship or presence.
