[Keynote] Wild West Security

Web software is a wild west frontier town. It’s nearly lawless, but inhabited by good folk who are mostly just trying to make an honest living. Our software faces various villains, from lawless savages to slick, well-funded bad people. Security people are the “cowboys” in this talk—but with an important catch. The cowboy is not here to rescue the townspeople from the bad guys by fighting the battles himself. The townspeople need to be taught to defend themselves using the tools they have. Software needs to be defended like the towns in western films where the townsfolk band together and drive off the villains.
