  • Moving Toward Better Security Testing of Software for Financial Services Recorded: Apr 20 2017 62 mins
    Steve Kosten, SANS instructor & Mike Ware, managing principal at Synopsys Software Integrity Group
    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

  • How to Deliver Robust and Secure Software Recorded: Dec 13 2016 59 mins
    Jonathan Knudsen
    Software development is a mad rush to market where it seems like the only thing that matters is functionality. Everyone is just trying to make something that works and start selling it before anyone else.
    In the long game, security, robustness, and safety are crucial. Resilient, enduring software demands a proper secure development life cycle (SDLC) in order to locate and eliminate vulnerabilities during product development and after release.
    Automated tools are indispensable for locating vulnerabilities, and a signoff approach to the SDLC results in a final product, brought to market in a timely fashion, that presents a minimized risk to both producer and consumer.
    This presentation examines the classes of tools that locate vulnerabilities and shows how they are used in the context of product development to save time and money and minimize risk.
  • 5 Questions to Ask Your Software Provider About Cybersecurity Recorded: Nov 11 2016 38 mins
    Robert Vamosi, Security Strategist
    Congratulations! You’ve taken the first steps to get that great IoT idea of yours into production. You’ve even hired a team of engineers to build out your dream. But in the rush to market, security (and software security in particular) cannot be an afterthought with IoT. Unlike a server crash in an enterprise environment, failure of an IoT device or component can result in direct physical harm. Think of medical devices. Or connected cars. Or industrial control systems. So, are you doing all you can to make sure your software does not contain weaknesses and vulnerabilities that could bite you later on down the road? In this talk I'll discuss the need for software testing, early and often, both known and unknown vulnerabilities. Not only for the code you create in house, but also for the code you adopt from outside sources -- up to 90% can come from sources outside of your control. Topics covered include static analysis, fuzz testing, software composition analysis, interactive application security testing, and test optimization.

  • Managing Security in IoT: Vulnerabilities in the Cyber Supply Chain Recorded: Mar 24 2015 61 mins
    Mikko Varpiola (Co-Founder, Codenomicon), Tyler Shields (Sr Analyst, Forrester), Todd Carpenter (Chief Engineer, Adventium)
    Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk
    •Present research highlighting the pervasiveness of vulnerabilities in third-party software components of IoT devices
    •Draw some conclusions about the state of software security in IoT today
    •Discuss some simple approaches to addressing these problems

As many of these systems are critical in nature, introducing them into a networked environment presents as many security challenges as it does advantages. Join Codenomicon and our esteemed guests for an engaging discussion about the business opportunities, challenges, and shifting approach to risk management posed by control systems in the Internet of Things.
  • Identifying and Managing Vulnerabilities in Health Care Recorded: Nov 13 2014 64 mins
    Mike Ahmadi (Medical Device Security, Codenomicon); Debra Bruemmer (Security Analyst, Mayo Clinic); Skip Snow (Forrester)
    The nearly blinding pace of technology growth in health care has led to networks of systems and devices that not only help support and maintain human lives, but have also taken on some of the characteristics of the biological systems they interact with. As the patient changes so do the medical devices connected to the patient, and so does the network connected to the medical devices. This interconnected system of man and technology has led to an environment where vulnerabilities in the technological systems can lead to dire consequences for the patient. Like the human systems technology must interact with, the technological systems need to be managed throughout their entire lifecycle, from inception to retirement. Please join this session for an overview of how vulnerabilities can be discovered, and what we need to do to continue managing vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle of a healthcare system.
