AppSec EU security event takeaways
Written by Neil Musgrove, Software Developer at Panintelligence
I’m part of the development team and my speciality is application security. I recently attended AppSec EU and in this post I'll share some highlights from the event.
Why attend the OWASP AppSec EU Security event?
I recently attended the OWASP AppSec EU conference in Belfast. OWASP is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that promotes security within the software industry and lays out standards which we aim to adhere to.
The AppSec EU event run by OWASP is a regular conference which combines talks by leaders in the field of application security with training courses. I was in Belfast for 5 days where I enjoyed beautiful weather and fantastic hospitality from the friendly locals. If you've not been to Belfast I highly recommend it!

The last two days were conference days, and I spent both days attending numerous talks on various tracks around both technical detail as well as procedural improvements. I also generated many ideas of how we can improve our agile development processes at Panintelligence to ensure we keep abreast of developments in security and are able to apply them to future product releases.
Here’s a sample of one of the talks
Most of the conference talks were recorded and are available here. You can get started with the one below:
