Security Testing for QA’s

Amelio Wright, Kayla Pate, and Mithun Chandra Jakkula Paylocity

About the Topic

With Security breaches becoming more prevalent daily, how do you stop your own company from making the news? Becoming proactive with security practices helps lower the risk of a security incident in your own organization. One way to practice proactive security is by embedding security testing in normal QA testing. By doing so we can help stop vulnerabilities from making it into production. In this talk we will cover what is Security Testing and why should it matter to QAs, how you can get involved today, and a walk through of what to look for in your own environment

Key Learning Objectives

  • What is Security Testing
  • How can QAs get involved in Security Testing
  • How to perform basic Security Testing
