Bugcrowd’s Keith Hoodlet to Present “Attack Driven Development” at InfoSec World 2018


InfoSec World 2018 is the Foremost Annual Conference Dedicated to the Business of Information Security

SAN FRANCISCO March 15, 2018Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security, will be presenting at InfoSec World 2018 Conference and Expo, March 19-21 at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Bugcrowd Trust and Security Engineer Keith Hoodlet will present “Attack Driven Development (A.D.D.)”. The session will help attendees learn how Attack Driven Development (A.D.D.) differs from traditional secure development practices as well as how to leverage this process to test applications and develop more-secure software.

Hoodlet began his career in infosec identifying security flaws in the popular Blizzard PC game, “Diablo”. Prior to his role as a Trust & Security Engineer at Bugcrowd, Hoodlet worked as an Engineer on the Customer Success team at Rapid7 and a Code Security Engineer and Veracode.

“Software Security professionals often express the concern that we do not teach computer science students about the dangers of insecure software as they begin their formal education,” said Keith Hoodlet, Trust and Security Engineer, Bugcrowd. “With the ever-increasing pace of new software development techniques and frameworks, Attack Driven Development lays out a process through which students and professionals alike can learn about the tools, techniques, and procedures for software development and application security in parallel.”

“InfoSec World 2018 brings together practitioners, researchers and experts at every level to create an interactive forum to learn about the latest advances in cybersecurity and the critical threats facing their organizations,” said Katherine Teitler, Director of Content, MISTI. “We are especially pleased with the content that will be presented at this year’s conference and are proud to have Bugcrowd Trust and Security Engineer Keith Hoodlet, join our program lineup. The knowledge, experience and strategies shared will be invaluable to InfoSec World attendees.”

InfoSec World 2018 features expert keynote addresses, stimulating panel discussions and interactive roundtables, hands-on tech labs as well as informative breakout sessions. Additionally, hands-on pre- and post-conference workshops and focused summits on CISO Leadership, Cloud Security and Privacy and Risk are also scheduled. To top it off, this gathering provides a rare opportunity for information security professionals to network, in an intimate yet vibrant setting, with more than 1,000 attendees from a range of industries, professional backgrounds and countries.
