Derek Fisher

Cerner Corporation
Application Security Manager

Derek Fisher has spent 20 years in both hardware and software engineering. He has spent the last 5 years in an Enterprise Security role as an architect and manager where his team provides security services to Cerner's development organization. These services include vulnerability management and remediation, assistance with secure code analysis tools, threat modeling, risk evaluation of development features, and driving the secure software development life cycle across the development community.

Derek has been the lead architect on some of the more exciting security projects in the organization, including projects related to HTTPS and certificate management. He also organizes and leads a regular meeting of security architects that meet to discuss and review security topics impacting the industry and the development community.

Becoming the application security manager in the Enterprise Security organization has given Derek the opportunity to work with the development organization to discover opportunities for improvement and engage in many different parts of the engineering space from design to delivery. Because of this visibility, Derek has spent the past year driving the OWASP ASVS in the software development life cycle across the development organization at Cerner. This has required him to navigate the various nuances of the culture, process, and operating procedures in order to understand where and how the ASVS can be used to deliver more secure software.
