Phoenix Security, Appsec Phoenix, Application Security Webinar Shifting left and keeping right safe with Tanya Janca and vulnerability management optimizations.

Fixing Application security at scale can be challenging, but keeping them safe can be even trickier; in this webinar, we explore with Tanya Janca how to shift left and keep operation (right) safe, the benefit of vulnerability management and how to optimize your tooling.

With this webinar, we aim to share a light of insight on application security programs, the complexity of starting them and why running application security programs with data helps collaboration.

Using metrics can turn a conversation; please patch, and please development team will fix all the critical

into. We noticed that the library you are using introduces the majority of vulnerabilities in the organization. as this project is public-facing, someone might exploit that remote code execution that is highly popular with attackers. it should take an upgrade

Audience recommendation:

  • Application security
  • Head of application security
  • Product security
  • Security Engineers
  • Developers with interest in security
  • CISO is interested in Secure SDLC and how to start a program

In this webinar, we will discuss

> Application security programs, challenges when starting

> Vulnerability Management and technology stack – how to use this at best

> what metrics make sense at the beginning and how to evolve the measurement of security

> data-driven conversation with development vs vulnerabilities driven conversation: how they differ

> Application security insights: technology, common issues, common libraries and how they can

> Cvss and CWE and challenges in measurement that are contextualized

Summary of the Webinar:

  • Without data, we are completely blind and completely serving. You can speed out the vulnerability if you have the tool. Hence we need to fix the vulnerability. Do you feel we constantly try to catch up if we don’t have enough data?
  • The idea of shift left was supposed to start security earlier in the system development lifecycle. I feel like the shift left got co-opted. My new mantra is to shift everywhere. I want to have security throughout the entire SDLC.
  • Working through the security backlog is another big thing. We lost a little with the shift left. The software composition analysis tools are maturing in the past year to year and a half.
  • The important thing is the externally facing API that processes your critical application. Stop talking about vulnerability and start talking about risk impact, mitigation, and contextual risk. Many organizations still need to get ahead of tooling, but there are also great tooling that is integrated.
