In fact, Agile is a relatively recent methodology used in the development process of a project. Therefore, it is important to provide knowledge to the audiences on how to use Agile in their projects. The program will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry participants to collaborate and learn from each other.

Conference 2014 Speakers

Dr. Imran Ghani, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM)

Dr. Imran Ghani

Dr. Imran Ghani is the organizer of yearly Agile Symposium Malaysia, 2013 & 2014. He has delivered keynote speaches at a number of International Conferences in Malaysia and South Korea. He is a Senior Lecturer at Faculty of Computing, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor Campus. He received his Master of Information Technology Degree from UAAR (Pakistan), M.Sc Computer Science from UTM (Malaysia) and Ph.D. from Kookmin University (South Korea).

Agile methods such as Scrum, Feature Driven Development (FDD), Dynamic System Development Method (DSDM) and eXtreme Programming (XP) have been criticized due to the lack of availability of security elements in their various phases and practices, resulting in the development of unsecure software. Thus, we have proposed the idea of a set of security-focused elements to enhance the existing agile models. In this presentation, the findings of the related research and the highlights of improved agile models after the integration of security, are presented.
