I’ll be representing Partnet at the SANS AppSec Summit at the end of this month.  We will participate on a panel called What you can learn from small businesses about AppSec.  I love working for a smaller company.  I think the flexibility, and the “buck stops here” mentality makes small businesses more effective than larger businesses.  But I think there is a misconception that small companies are not disciplined – that they have a “wild-west” like attitude.  That may be true generally, but not here.  Discipline and ownership of security are what I think is the “secret sauce” to a successful AppSec program.  We’ll talk about it at the SANS AppSec summit.  If you are attending, please come by and say hello.
