Video: Agile Application Security Presentation by Laura Bell

On Monday, April 17, Child Welfare Digital Services (CWDS) and the California Office of Systems Integration (OSI) hosted the first in a series of brown bag lunches intended to share expertise and experiences with agile software development with State of California employees. Our first guest speaker was Laura Bell, co-author of Agile Application Security and founder of SafeStack, a company focused on agile application security services. Ms. Bell discussed a range of security tools and techniques specifically adapted to integrate with agile development. These practices aim to raise security awareness and confidence without compromising innovation, complexity, and speed.

CWDS Quarterly Stakeholder Forum

Intake Solution Demo: Sandbox

At today’s Quarterly Stakeholder Forum, Intake Digital Service Manager Wendy Christian and Intake Product Owner Jeff Dent gave a demonstration of the newly created “sandbox” that will help voluntary county users better understand new functionality of the intake module, as developers and designers continue to iterate on versions of the new system.  The standalone sandbox uses test data to give users a sense of workflow and usability, without any security risks.

The Intake Module covers the spectrum of Emergency Response – from the time a report of child abuse comes into the hotline through the work done by a CPS social worker to investigate these allegations of child abuse and neglect.

Key slides from the presentation are below, stay tuned for more details.  The video archive of today’s session will be posted soon.
