Wednesday 26-February-2020 // 6:00 – 9:00 PM
Meeting Location: Michener Auditorium at UHN, 222 St. Patrick Street, Toronto


February TASK

Speaker: Rahul Raghavan
Topic: Security Checkpoints for Agile Engineering

In this age of rapid product engineering, we are amidst the flux of jargon- dropping in a dire attempt to drive home the need for scalable application security models. While Agile Engineering and Security Automation have independently creates waves within product engineering and security engineering communities respectively, the practical realisation of Security Automation WITHIN Agile engineering is far from the ideal.

This “HOW-TO” talk would focus on translating application security objectives into sustainable engineering tasks that can be seamlessly consumed within the product development process. The presenter will delve deep into identifying and designing security checkpoints within the SDLC mapped to the fundamental principles of Design, Build, Develop and Deploy! Finally, the talk would also propose a Plan -Do -Check -Act (PDCA) mechanism through which product engineering teams can extend these checkpoints from ideation to deployment and all the way back.

Speaker: Hisham Qaddoumi
Topic: Machines that fight: State of the Nation of Cybersecurity and AI

Artificial Intelligence is reshaping the security industry. Rapid advances in ML and the creation of machines that can mimic human behaviour raises cybercrime to a level. This talk sheds light on the applied usage of AI in cybersecurity in the fight against cybercrime. As an expert in AI, Hisham will provide an overview of the field and deeper implications for security professionals. He’ll describe where in cybersecurity AI is having the greatest impact toady and explore future possibilities.
