Of the many security processes that is to be followed when building secure software, one crucial process is code audit or code review. Code audits when properly done from a security standpoint can attest to the resiliency of the software against hacker attacks.
In the “Teach Security” part of this talk, we will focus on “Auditing for your software” and look at what is a code audit and what it is not, the types of code audit, the controls to look for when doing a code audit, and how to conduct a proper code audit from a cybersecurity perspective. In the “Teach Christ” part of this talk, we will look at “Auditing for your soul” covering the need to look within oneself to ensure that one is not vulnerable to the exploits of the devil or his ways, and look at God as the ultimate soul auditor. In the “Teach Security in Christ” part of this talk, we will focus on Jesus Christ, The ultimate control, as it pertain to the final audit that every one would have to go through.
