David shared the converging of IT and OT and highlighted the consideration in securing CPS.
High Resilience by Improving Test Maintenance
Steve Neo, Parasoft South East Asia
Steve presented a lite introduction to techniques for improved Application Resiliency. When it comes to testing large and complex applications, the biggest issue is really maintaining the test suite, because of the noise potential. There is no reason to create a test if you are unable to maintain it. If you get a task to fix a bug, would modification to the existing test catch the bug in the future?

Stefan discussed a new approach to application security that would enable Agile development teams to ship software at DevOps speed.
