Best Practice For End to End Software Security – Software & Open Source SIG event
Thursday 15 January – 1330 to 1730
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge
Software plays an important role in the development of products and applications in the wireless sector, and designing safe and secure systems is becoming increasingly important. Whether in mobile, IoT or cloud, the main concern for users or administrators is security. The responsibility usually falls on the shoulders of the software engineer and system architect, however as security threats become greater the industry needs to help and share the responsibility.
This event will investigate the issue of security in software and provide guidance and advice on how to create more secure systems. Both engineers and managers can learn more from our speakers:
- Rob Toulson Director, CoDE, Anglia Ruskin University
- Craig Heath, Director, Franklin Heath Ltd
- Richie Saville, CTO, Flexeye
- Ian Pratt, Co-Founder and EVP of Products at Bromium

There will be ample time to network with delegates, speakers and SIG Champions at the event.
