After talking to so many customers throughout the years, it becomes more and more obvious that not all AppSec programs are created equal. The problem that we at Fortify find is that most content is tailored to the customers that are already nearing a mature program. We saw this as a chance to fill some gaps along the way when it came to our latest webinars. So in case you missed them, here is a recap of our three part webinar series on creating and then maturing an application security program. Enjoy!
Get Started with Seamless AppSec in One Day
With software becoming the competitive differentiator for most businesses rather than just a support function, the speed and complexity of it is rapidly increasing. Because of the business demand being put on development teams, often times there is little to no time put into ensuring these applications are secure. However, the biggest and most severe data breaches that have affected both the public and private sectors all operate at the application layer.
Ensuring your applications are secure doesn’t have to be a cumbersome process, though. With the right program and tools, you can improve or start your organization’s security initiative without getting in the way of developers’ productivity. In this webinar, we will cover:
- The current state of software and application security
- Aligning with a Maturity Model
- Performing a Security Assessment
- Security Champions
- Defining Your Initial Scope
Fitting Security into Your Software Lifecycle: Automation and Integration
One of the biggest challenges in Application Security programs is the friction it causes between other teams due to the idea that security slows down speed and innovation. Business goals are to generate revenue with product and feature releases. In order for businesses to stay competitive, they can’t slow down innovation. Because of this, a fundamental principle of application security is to build security into your way of thinking and operating. In this webinar, we are joined by Sonatype and Saltworks to discuss how to accomplish this fundamental principle by leveraging key integrations and automation.
Optimizing and Maturing an AppSec Program
Many organizations turn to the guidance provided by the OWASP Top 10 for their application security programs. While this is a great way to get started, a more mature and optimized program is needed to avoid being the next headline. Over 60% of applications tested by our software security research team last year had one or more critical or high-severity security flaw NOT covered by the OWASP Top 10. Organizations that only test or mitigate security risks found within these Top 10 are still very vulnerable to attacks. In this webinar, we discuss steps to take to mature your application security program, along with some success stories of companies that have done this with the help of Micro Focus Fortify.
