2020 San Francisco Virtual Symposium
DevSecOps and AppSec: How to Better Align to the Hierarchy of Needs


Thursday, May 21, 2020 | 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Web Conference, San Francisco, CA

In application security, a common failure point is when security teams neglect to consider the Security Hierarchy of Needs: Authentication, Asset Management, Encryption, Logging and Zoning/Containment. Together, they cover 80 percent of an organization’s security program.

In this symposium, IANS Faculty member Shannon Lietz will review each need and explain how they directly affect application security and DevSecOps strategies. The agenda will include:

  • Case studies detailing organizations that ignored the hierarchy and the result
  • Case studies for properly aligning strategies


This regional in-person symposium has been updated to a virtual event and is intended for practitioners from the San Francisco metro area. For people outside of the region who wish to join, attendance is subject to capacity. We will inform out-of-metro registrants on the status of their registration one week in advance of the symposium.

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