At the end of the day, security depends on code. Secure software demands secure code, configuration, management, testing, and constant improvement.

Security automation aligns perfectly with the modern, fast-paced environments like continuous delivery that are quickly seeping into companies of all kinds.

Automation provides drastic results with little effort, but quickly reaches a plateau where the effort involved in finding better results that provide value rises above the value of focusing elsewhere.

In this talk, I will focus on some of the lesser discussed topics of security automation and how they relate to the lines of code that produce the reason why we are discussing security automation today. The goal is to give a complete understanding of the ways that companies like _ and _ have produced secure code that runs their web applications.
