ShiftLeft, Inc., a leader in application security, today announced Shifting Left 2.0, a premier, two-day virtual event that will bring together modern development teams, application security professionals, and the developers seeking to champion security initiatives. Taking place June 22 and 23, Shifting Left 2.0 will present attendees with educational deep-dives, anecdotal lessons, and peer networking opportunities intended to unite security teams and developers, providing both with the tools they need to start finding and fixing vulnerabilities.

To thrive in today’s digital business era, organizations are continuously accelerating and refining digital transformation initiatives, placing renewed pressure on developers to produce software at record velocity. At the same time, code security has become even more critical as cyber attacks and supply chain threats grow in sophistication and frequency, and our world continues to rely on digital services for day-to-day functions.

Shifting Left 2.0 builds on the success of ShiftLeft’s inaugural virtual event, Shifting Left Day, which fueled rare conversations between the developer and application security communities. This second free event will span two days offering newfound insights from renowned experts about application security for developers, modern developer workflows, code analysis, and software composition analysis.

“We had an incredible response to our inaugural Shifting Left event and are excited to expand to a full two-days of content, bringing attendees even more expert insights and best practices for securing their software,” said Manish Gupta, CEO, ShiftLeft. “Major supply chain attacks in recent months have highlighted the vulnerability of software development pipelines. More than ever, we must arm developers with the knowledge they need to champion security and foster collaboration with application security teams to achieve success within the modern development lifecycle. We are looking forward to the opportunity to connect with our customers, partners, and peers and learn from the insights of our broader community.”
