Cybersecurity is gaining more and more attention over the last years. In this talk we will briefly motivate and discuss important steps that companies need to take to address this topic. Our talk will address the product security lifecycle based on the OWASP Software Assurance Maturity Level. Towards the end of our talk we will shift our focus to secure coding as an important milestone of software development. We will also briefly introduce CyberSecurity Challenges – a new serious game to raise awareness of secure coding for software developers in the industry. This game has been developed at Siemens in partnership with academia, and will be offered as an hands-on event.
