Testing In the Pub Episode 20 – The 3 Epiphanies Of Security Testing

Welcome back to Testing In the Pub. We’re back. Sorry it’s taken so long 🙂

We’ve got a great interview to start our new season of podcasts. We talk to Declan O’Riordan about his 3 epiphanies of security testing over a pint of Guinness.

Perhaps you’ve seen Declan talking at a conference over the past year – his presentations on security testing have been really well received and at his debut EuroSTAR conference speaking opportunity in 2014 he won the prize for best conference paper and was voted the session delegates would most like repeated with ‘The What? Why? Who? And How? Of Application Security’.

Declan subsequently won the prize for best conference paper at the STAR East conference in 2015 with ‘Security Testing: What Testers Can Do’ as well.  He knows more than a bit about security testing 🙂

So sit back and have a listen. Cheers!

  1. Very interesting indeed. It is scary how little security is thought about and how easy it is to make little buttons and redirects appear on front ends that i am only supposed to be doing simple manual functional tests for.
    I’ll tell you what though, it scares and impresses every PM and business owner I’ve shown at various clients but at the same time i hear other team members saying things like “oh… well, i don’t think think that’s something for us to worry about”
