Mend Together – London

March 7th, 6 pm,
The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel

If there’s something we’ve learned from the past few years, it’s that meeting in person isn’t something we should take for granted.

We are very excited to invite you to our first meetup in 2023:
Mend Together – London!

Join us for a wonderful evening of educating content, great networking and of course – fine dining, with London’s cyber security leaders, at the luxurious “Chesterfield Mayfair” Hotel, in the heart of one of London’s finest neighborhoods. 

 

Agenda: 

6.00-6.30 pm
Gathering – champagne and canapés

6.30-7.15 pm
A fascinating session entitled “Shift-left Security: More than just a catchphrase” by Vince King, Head of DevSecOps for Cloud Transformation at the Bank of England.

7.15-9.30 pm
A delicious 3-course dinner 
accompanied by a selection of wines, champagne and more surprises, in the private room at The “Chesterfield’s Mayfair” Hotel
(35 Charles St, London W1J 5EB).

 

Overview: 

Shift-left Security: More than just a catchphrase
Vulnerabilities like Log4j may be headline grabbers, but thousands of applications are being targeted by hackers who use flaws in code as attack vectors. Vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting or improper authorisation are on the increase, and with the increased use of open source software we need to ensure “shift-left security” is more than just a catchphrase.

During this presentation we’ll look at:
– What modern development looks like
– What developers want
– What developers actually need
– Where does security fit into to all this “agile” working?

The invitation is personal.
Please don’t share it with other people. We have limited seats.
Please RSVP as soon as possible.
