Software Security Leaders & Practitioners

You are invited
Securing software in a world moving at the speed of DevOps is a monumental challenge. So, 25+ innovative security leaders have come together to take this challenge head-on, and write not only a modern reference book to address it, but build a community around it.

This book and the vibrant community supporting it have been designed to create awareness, share challenges, and promote best practices to inspire you to take action.

This book will be shared as a free resource with all so we can work towards simplifying software security and help our organizations stay secure and compliant.

This book will release in Q3 2021 and we are currently inviting leading practitioners to join in the dialogue. Come join us!
