12:00 Featured presentation:

Security Compass recently completed a comprehensive research study by surveying companies across multiple industries with the goal of discovering how large, complex organizations address application security at scale.  The majority of respondents surveyed were multinational organizations who reported annual earnings greater than $1 billion USD.  Through this new research study, we have gleamed novel insights on how the financial industry handles application security at scale.  Through this presentation, we will reveal aggregated insights, industry trends, and best practices that illuminate how financial institutions are addressing application security at scale, so that you may apply and compare these learnings to the state of application security at your own financial institution.
