We go beyond traditional application testing to empower you to build security into your software at every stage of your development process. We offer application testing and remediation expertise, guidance for structuring a software security initiative, training, and professional services for a proactive approach to application security.

Open source software is embraced by developers, enterprises, and governments at every level, and with it comes many strong opinions and few facts. How much open source is really being used in the applications you buy? Does the "many eyes" theory make open source more secure? Does traditional security testing address vulnerabilities in open source?
With organizations becoming more agile but facing increasing regulatory governance, understanding how open source software development works, and how to secure open source, is increasingly important. In this session we’ll cover:
- Code contribution and IP management
- Fork management
- Release process
- Security response processes
- Realities of IP risk and open source
- Pass through security risk and responsibility
- Keeping up with scope of impact changes within a single disclosure
- Automating awareness of security risk from development through integration and delivery to deployment
While software grows more complex and the pace of development accelerates, the stakes for building secure software have never been higher. If you’re like most teams embracing a DevOps culture, you’re focused on breaking down silos, streamlining workflows, and cranking out functional software at a nearly continuous clip. Amid all these fundamental changes, how do you ensure your software is secure without clogging up the pipeline?
Listen as guest Forrester Principal Analyst, Amy DeMartine and Black Duck Open Source Security Expert, Patrick Carey come together to discuss how to automate and distribute application security testing across the SDLC. In this webinar, we’ll discuss
- Why it's important to build application security into your development and operations toolchains and processes
- Best practices for integration application security throughout the application lifecycle
- How to use SAST and SCA together to maximize the security of the software your teams deliver

If your organisation competes in the global market, you should expect GDPR to have a critical influence on the software that powers your business. Having a disciplined software security approach will help you not only identify, remediate, and prevent weaknesses in your software but also avoid violating GDPR.
Listen as experts Adam Brown of Synopsys and legal expert Dan Hedley of Irwin Mitchell, LLP provide insights into what GDPR requirements mean for your security initiative, how your existing security activities can support compliance, and best practices to keep in mind as you look to mature your software security program.

SAST, IAST, DAST, MAST, *AST – There are plenty of technologies and ways to test your software, but how do we do that without slowing us down in a rapid development environment. In this talk we will give practical advice on how to integrate software security testing into your CI/CD and your development process so it works. The talk will review the pros and cons of each of the testing technologies, and how to adapt it to rapid development, and how to manage the balance between risk and speed to build a proper signoff process, so that real threats will become blockers, but other issues will be handled in a parallel slower cycle, without slowing down the main delivery.
CISOs play an important role in our software-driven world, but what they do on a daily basis—and why—have largely remained a mystery—at least until we studied them in the wild and created the CISO Report.
Join us as Gary McGraw, CISO Report author and VP of security technology at Synopsys, along with analysts Scott Crawford and Dan Kennedy from 451 Research discuss the evolving role of the CISO and what this novel study reveals:
- What are the four newly identified CISO tribes, and which characteristics distinguish them?
- How can knowing your tribe advance your organization’s security initiatives and spur career development?
-Why does your CISO’s tribe reflect the priorities and dynamics within your organization?

Vulnerabilities are an inevitable part of software development and management. Whether it’s open source or custom code, new vulnerabilities will be discovered as a code base ages. A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as severe. As the number of disclosures, patches, and updates grows, security professionals must decide which items are critical and must be addressed immediately and which items can be deferred.
Join Black Duck’s VP of Security Strategy, Mike Pittenger, for a 30-minute discussion of best practices in open source security and vulnerability management. You’ll learn:
- Methods for determining which applications are most attractive to attackers, and which pose the greatest risk
- Ways to assess the risk associated with a disclosed open source vulnerability
- Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can’t be made
IT operations teams are now deploying and running hundreds or even thousands of containers at any given time. This rapid deployment surfaces challenges in validating the contents and security of container images being deployed. In this session, Black Duck container and virtualization expert Tim Mackey will provide an overview of technologies and solutions such as Red Hat OpenShift that enable organizations to deploy containers at scale securely.
In this webinar, Tim Mackey explores this new era of large scale container deployments and how to manage and secure them.
Attend and you'll learn:
- How to maintain visibility and control for the open source deployed in hundreds of containers
- How to help your development and operations teams work together to maintain the security of containers in production
- How to build security into your deployment of container orchestration platforms
- Measures you can take to proactively identify risks and remediate risks on containers in production
- How you can use Black Duck OpsSight to scan containers being created, updated or deployed through their container orchestration platforms
