Talk Description
Vernon Richards was joined by Richard Adams, from Edinburgh, who contributed to both TestBash UK 2022 and 2023 with the topic of Security in Testing, showing that this is a very hot topic, as all of his sessions were super well attended!

This year, Richard delivered the talk Exploring Security in Day-to-day Testing where he shared how we can include security in our day-to-day testing.

Richard also delivered a 99 Minute Workshop titled Let's Go Security Testing! and the Activity Red Pen Testing, which you now also have access to.
What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:

  • Know that security testing is something that they can & should be doing
  • Be able to identify the "low hanging fruit" security bugs in their software
Richard Adams's profile'

Richard Adams

Senior Quality Engineer

After my first full time job as a games tester, I've had a varied career from Gameplay Systems Designer to Software Engineer for security systems with a couple of roles in between. I've since returned to testing as I have a huge passion for testing and just love finding bugs! As well as being a Senior Test Engineer, I am also a Cyber Champion within my organisation. This means that I help drive good security practices and in particular I love getting the team involved in threat modelling. I also get free training on all things security! Out of work I love gaming and carrying on my interest in threat modelling, I have also created a card game called Threat Agents.
