Code Dx CEO and Cybersecurity Expert, Anita D'Amico, to Keynote at Association for IT Professionals Long Island Annual Event

Dr. D'Amico Will Present on "Securing the Attacker's Favorite Entry Point - Your Software"

NORTHPORT, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 15, 2016) - Code Dx, Inc., a provider of an award-winning suite of fast and affordable tools that help software developers, testers and security analysts find, prioritize and manage software vulnerabilities, today announced that its CEO, Anita D'Amico, Ph.D., will be a keynote speaker at the Association for IT Professionals Long Island Chapter's Annual Boat Trip Seminar on Friday, June 24, 2016.

The event theme is "Epic Failures - Security Trends & Strategies". Dr. D'Amico's presentation, titled "Securing the Attacker's Favorite Entry Point - Your Software" will introduce attendees to the domain of application security testing, and discuss why and how the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is investing heavily in new technologies to secure the country's software supply chain. She will explain static code analysis and dynamic application penetration testing, as well as discuss industry standards that will help organizations prioritize which vulnerabilities to fix first.

"Most cybersecurity incidents can be traced back to a software vulnerability that was inadvertently put there when code was developed, making application security testing a critical topic today for every organization that develops or purchases software," said Dr. D'Amico, CEO for Code Dx. "I'm looking forward to speaking to this group of IT professionals and sharing my insight on how organizations can and should take the necessary steps to find and fix vulnerabilities in their applications before they are exploited by malicious attackers and wreak havoc on their enterprise."
