  • Systems Failures Fuel Security-Focused Design Practices
    Systems Failures Fuel Security-Focused Design Practices Christopher Rommel, Executive Vice President, VDC Research and Joe Jarzombek,Security Strategist, Synopsys Recorded: Aug 2 2017 47 mins
    Today’s electronic systems are more intelligent, more connected, and more at risk than ever before. A single vulnerability can lead to widespread system-of-systems compromises. Organizations participating in security-critical industries like Aerospace and Defense (A&D) are especially at risk.

    In this webinar, Christopher Rommel from VDC and Joe Jarzombek from Synopsys will discuss the results from a recent report highlighting issues facing these organizations. They will also identify what considerations need to be made for the security of software that enables and controls system functionality.

    This webinar will explore:
    • The importance of quality and security in current projects
    • The amount of code re-use from previous projects
    • How automated quality and security testing tools can integrate into your current SDLC

  • The Side Effects of the Internet of Things
    The Side Effects of the Internet of Things Chenxi Wang, ITSPmagazine | Ted Harrington, ISE | Gary Hayslip, Webroot | Mike Ahmadi, Synopsys Recorded: Jul 25 2017 43 mins
    - Broadcast LIVE from Las Vegas during Black Hat 2017 -
    Innovation is moving so fast. Each day there's a new device or technological service to hit the market designed to make our lives easier, more convenient, and perhaps even healthier. They listen to us, watch us, learn about us. They help us make decisions. They “guess” our next move - our pending desire. They make decisions - even take action on our behalf. As a society we snatch up these new devices as quickly as they hit the shelves and use them with open arms, unknowingly putting our privacy and safety at risk.

    How many devices are there? What are they used for? In this session, we’ll focus on the side effects associated with devices used to run our countries, our cities, our homes, our lives - even our physical being.

    Ultimately, it’s about the lack of cybersecurity - because there is a lack of cybersecurity, there’s no conversation about it, and therefore there is no understanding (awareness) of what’s at risk for using these devices. It’s not necessarily a bad thing - but the fact we are making uninformed decisions as a society means we could be putting ourselves and our loved ones at risk without even knowing it.

    This panel is part 1 of 2 parts - it’s all about the lack of security and the side effects it has on us as individuals and as a society. What are we trading in exchange for using these devices to make our lives “better”? Bottom line... are you (we) surrendering to the technology?

  • State of Software Composition 2017 - What's in your app?
    State of Software Composition 2017 - What's in your app? Robert Vamosi, CISSP and Security Strategist at Synopsys Recorded: Jul 12 2017 34 mins
    So much of the software today is created using third-party code, and why not? After all, it’s quicker and cheaper than building from scratch. Using third-party software, however, isn’t without challenges as the recent report The State of Software Composition Analysis 2017 reveals. In this webinar, the presenters will not only share highlights from this report, but they’ll also explore:

    •The use of trusted repositories for open source software, preferably from the source.
    •The use of SCA to monitor the ongoing state of software decay.
    •The need to update third-party software libraries as appropriate throughout the lifecycle.

  • Software Security Strategy with BSIMM
    Software Security Strategy with BSIMM Sammy Migues, Principal Scientist Recorded: May 3 2017 54 mins
    If you play a role in your organization’s software security program, you know there is no shortage of things to do. In fact, the Building Security In Maturity Model (BSIMM) calls out the 113 most commonly observed software security activities. The BSIMM enables experts like you to discover what others are doing in this universe, how those activities currently work, how they worked in the past, and how they are likely to work in the future.

    However, implementing BSIMM activities like a checklist won’t get you to success. It takes some real strategy to efficiently include new software security activities and also ensure existing activities continue to be applied well.

    Listen as Sammy Migues, Principal Scientist at Synopsys, discusses how to marry BSIMM activities to a strategy enabling you to build a viable security program. Sammy bases his insights on over 300 in-depth assessments within the BSIMM and 30+ years of industry experience.
  • Moving Toward Better Security Testing of Software for Financial Services
    Moving Toward Better Security Testing of Software for Financial Services Steve Kosten, SANS instructor & Mike Ware, managing principal at Synopsys Software Integrity Group Recorded: Apr 20 2017 62 mins
    The financial services industry (FSI) maintains high-value assets and typically operates in a very complex environment. Applications of all types—web applications, mobile applications, internal web services and so forth—are being developed quickly in response to market pressures by developers with limited security training and with relatively immature processes to support secure application development. This combination presents a juicy target for attackers, and data shows that the FSI continues to be a top target. Attempts to introduce security into the application life cycle frequently face challenges such as a lack of available application security expertise, concerns about costs for tooling, and a fear among product owners that security processes might impede the development cycle and slow their response to market conditions.

    This webinar will explore:
    - Who is the financial services industry (FSI)?
    - Drivers of application security
    - Inhibitors of application security
    - The foundation of a secure SDLC
