On December 1st, the SaaSificationSecurity.com as part of the Nebucom.be activities organized its first SaaSification Security bootcamp.
Intended to starters of Software as a Service companies, starting or enhancing their applications, by providing them guidance on the technical and business challenges related to security and privacy in their SaaS platforms.
The first bootcamp dived into the challenges related to the cloud, general infrastructure security challenges, touched upon data protection issues, distribution of keys and securing data and applications and protection code based upon OWASP challenges and other.
Participants joined us mainly from developers and operators of private clouds, being capable of still watching over (and facing the challenges) in maintaining their own infrastructure.
During this interactive session, challenges were raised and ideas were generated on how to ensure the basic security levels throughout the chain, but also on ways to harden the developments when considering the use and integration of public clouds.
Discussions were held on resilience, accessiblility of systems, integration with other security services from the cloud such as identities and ensuring pervasiveness of the applications throughout the firewalls of the end customers (in case of B2B situations where SaaS could be regarded and discarded as ShadowIT).
Join us in our next Bootcamp session on January 13th, with a Deep Dive into Identity systems and software security from a licensing perspective.
