Andrew Linn

Andrew Linn, SVP, Chief Information Security Officer of Orrstown Financial Services, will speak during the event that targets application developers, security professionals, and leaders interested in improving their organization’s cyber security.

In a recent CIO Journal, published by the Wall Street Journal, James Kaplan, a partner at McKinsey & Co. and co-author of “Beyond Cybersecurity: Protecting Your Digital Business” said “A far better model (for software development) would be if you were teaching your developers how to write secure code, were including security architects in the development process from day one of the project, and investing in tools for secure development. Then you have many fewer flaws at the end of the process.” He added “Most developers have not been trained on secure coding practices.”
