Twubhubbook - It's Like An AppSec Program, But For Startups

Neil Matatall - Security Engineer, Github

This month, we’ve got Neil Matatall on Signal Sciences’ Modern Security Series! Neill will share practical advice that you can take to your current or future startup based on the successes and failures of today’s startups.

Neil Matatall is an engineer at GitHub focused on account and application security. Previously, Neil has been an engineer at Twitter, AT&T Interactive, and University of California Irvine. He has spent his entire career in the “builder” and “defender” camps. He spends his days lurking in the w3c-webappsec list and improving (or complicating) specifications via Twitter conversations.

Brief Overview of This Month’s Modern Security Episode

It’s 2025. Many of the problems in appsec in <%= current_year %> have mitigations, maybe even solutions. The value of an appsec program is widely accepted as a requirement for any successful company. Yet XSS and other common vulnerabilities are still occupying the time of many engineering teams. Twubhubbook, a fictitious startup from the future, has the benefit of being a new startup: it’s mostly a blank slate situation. This is the story of how Twubhubbook rolled out their program without skipping a beat or breaking the bank. The purpose of this imaginary story is to provide practical advice that you can take to a current or future startup (sorry enterprise people) based on the successes and failures of today’s startups.

Fill out the form and we’ll send you a copy of Neil’s talk from March 1st, 2017.
