Dave Hatter - Mitigating the Privacy and Security Risks of “Citizen Development”

Digital transformation is driving up the demand for rapid application development and organizations are increasingly embracing “Citizen Development” to satisfy the demand. Non-technical users can leverage low-code and no-code (LCNC) tools and platforms to build and deploy software solutions with limited or no programming expertise. These tools are rapidly growing in popularity, in fact, Gartner predicts that by 2025, 70% of enterprises will use LCNC tools. 

But LCNC solutions can pose significant security and privacy challenges that must be addressed to prevent data breaches and compliance issues. Forrester recently predicted that citizen development will lead to a headline security breach in 2023. 

We will discuss popular NCLC tools and platforms used for Citizen Development, examine the challenges of managing Citizen Development, explore the threats and risks of Citizen Development and look at best practices for securing these tools and their output including security awareness training for Citizen Developers. 


This presentation will provide an in-depth understanding of the privacy and cybersecurity risks associated with Citizen Development and equip attendees with the knowledge and tools needed to effectively secure their organizations’ Citizen Development programs.
