Revealing the Truth Behind Software Security Myths and Realities
While web and mobile applications account for more than a third of data breaches (source: 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report), most organizations are not spending time or money on application security. So why the disconnect? One reason is that fallacies abound when it comes to application security. Many of these fallacies stem from the traditional, on-premises tools-based approach to application security, which has fostered the misconception that application security programs are expensive and difficult to manage. But as breaches continue to make headlines, organizations are realizing the serious risk posed by applications.

We are truly in the 'age of containers' as developers continue the rapid adoption of containers and their associated orchestration tooling to improve delivery times of working software. This change in development methodology presents challenges to the AppSec team who have to understand this new paradigm.
Join Colin Domoney, Senior Principal Transformation Consultant @ CA Technologies, for this live webinar where he will provide an introduction into generic container toolchains, guidance on how to leverage and embed your existing security tooling investment into a container centric environment. As well as how to select and evaluate container specific tooling.
Practical advice will be given on how to employ the CIS Benchmark and how to ensure general best practices are applied in securing and hardening the container environments. The participant should come away with a working knowledge of how containers are used, built and deployed; and practical ideas on how to improve their container security posture.
Chris Kirsch, Director, Product Marketing at CA Veracode
Most companies start their application security program with a manual penetration test of their most business-critical applications. While this type of assessment covers a lot of ground, it’s not as scalable and repeatable as automated scanning technologies. As your program matures, you’ll have to branch out into more automated technologies.
This talk will review the merits of static analysis, dynamic analysis, software composition analysis, and penetration testing, indicating which technologies make sense in your specific situation as you mature your application security program.
Paul Farrington - Director of Solutions Architects @ CA Veracode
To understand the severity of a flaw you need to understand the extent to which it can be exploited. With software becoming more and more complex so does the difficulty of securing it.
Join Paul Farrington, Director of Solutions Architect @ CA Veracode for this live webinar, where he will explore the distinctions between various security flaws and how you can combat them.
You will leave the session understanding how to identify and address risk factors, how attackers exploit vulnerabilities & the extent to which organisations rely on AppSec technology to secure the SDLC.
This session will be led by Katy Anton - Senior Application Security Consultant @ Veracode, OWASP Bristol Chapter Leader & Project Co-Leader for OWASP Proactive Controls Project. Katy will take the audience through the ins and outs of the OWASP Top 10.
As software becomes increasingly complex, the difficulty of achieving application security increases. With the rapid pace of modern software development processes, securing the software from the beginning can be challenging.
-How can developers write more secure applications?
-What are the security techniques they could use while writing their software?
These are hard questions, as evidenced by the increased cyber breaches. This session will explore the OWASP Top 10 (2017) and will identify the security controls that can prevent these vulnerabilities in which developers can use in the software development lifecycle. By the end of the webinar, you will have an arsenal of security controls that you can start using and apply them while writing your software applications.
Register to this session to find out how the OWASP Top 10 can secure your DevSecOps Initiative!
It’s one thing to simply talk about the pervasiveness of open source risk. What do you do when your leadership team wants you to actually take action? Where do you start? How do you even begin to inventory the seemingly insurmountable amount of open source libraries deployed across your entire application infrastructure? It takes a systematic approach to identifying vulnerable open source libraries – a system that requires multiple stakeholders across various functional groups including security, development, and sometimes your legal and vendor management teams.
Join Mark Curphy, VP of Strategy at CA Veracode, as he interviews a customer to discuss how they were successful in implementing a scalable security program to effectively tackle the problem of open source risk. You’ll get real insights from an industry practitioner about how to recognize harmful third party libraries, establish an open source software security policy, and communicate security requirements to the team at large.

How far-reaching is a vulnerability in one open source component? We recently took a closer look at one vulnerable component to find out. We followed the path of one component library -- Apache Commons Collection (or ACC) that contained a serious vulnerability. We traced all the other libraries ACC touched and, in turn, made vulnerable. In the end, we found its vulnerability had spread to an astounding 80,323 additional components.
Attend this session to follow the path of this vulnerability and get a clear picture of exactly how and why open source libraries can pose such significant risk, and how to use and manage them in a secure way.
When software development moves at the speed of DevOps, creating every line of code from scratch is simply not feasible. In turn, most development shops are increasingly relying on open source libraries to supplement their code.
The use of these open source libraries is not in itself a bad thing, on the contrary, it’s best practice, and not taking advantage of this code would put your organization at a competitive disadvantage. The risky part lies with the visibility. What happens when it’s revealed that an open source library contains a major vulnerability? Would you know if you are using that library? What about where or how you are using it? Could you find out fast enough to patch it? Attend this session to get up to speed on open source library use, including its risks and best practices.

Web Applications continue to be one of the primary attack vectors that lead to breaches at organizations all over the world. As more and more organizations adopt DevOps and CI/CD workflows, there has been an added push to shift security testing to earlier stages in the software development lifecycle. Finding flaws earlier can save precious time as release cycles become faster, however, what happens once an application is running? With the ever-changing threat landscape that organizations function in today, even an application that was developed as securely as possible can become vulnerable over time as attackers uncover new ways to exploit weaknesses. Organizations who do not continue to test their running web applications risk missing exploitable vulnerabilities that could lead to a breach. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of performing Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) on web applications during your testing and QA phases to catch exploitable vulnerabilities before you release that static testing alone cannot find. We will also discuss how establishing a recurring schedule of DAST scans on your running web applications can help your organization discover new vulnerabilities and help you reduce your risk of a breach.

Matt Runkle, Application Security Consultant, CA Veracode
It’s no secret that open source security is a hotly debated topic. However it’s important to keep in mind that commercially licensed third-party software carries much of the same risk as open source software. While helping a customer attain a Verified certification, one of CA Veracode’s application security consultants uncovered a cross-site scripting flaw in the popular Telerik Reporting project. The flaw has since been patched but it’s these types of unknown risks that organizations take when introducing third party code into their environment.
During this talk, you’ll hear from Matt Runkle, the AppSec Consultant who uncovered the XSS flaw, to get insight into the mind of a hacker and hear how vulnerabilities like XSS are commonly exploited in third party software and how you can take action to prevent attacks like this in your own environment.
As software becomes a bigger component of the value delivered by companies in every industry, it’s no exaggeration to say that every company is becoming a software company.
We find our customers pushing the envelope on how to tool up their internal software factory to make software better, faster and more efficiently. By necessity, software is more often assembled than it is created from scratch, as developers are more frequently incorporating open source libraries to speed up time-to-market. But as open source libraries increase, so do the number of vulnerabilities, resulting in increased risk.
In this session, CA Veracode CTO Chris Wysopal talks about what it means to be secure by design, and why businesses need to focus on prevention. The days of detect-and-respond tactics are a thing of the past – we’re living in an age when the attacks will happen before you have the time to find and respond to them. Attendees will also learn about why an application security program is imperative to data protection, how to mitigate open source risk and ensure secure coding practices are in place to prove that security is a top priority for your organization.
Open source is here to stay. Iconic brands like Google, Facebook, and Twitter have pioneered the practice of building their platforms on a core of code that is shared with the public and free for anyone to use. Rather than build applications from scratch, today’s developers first look to third-party code to kick start their innovation in the form of open source libraries. Unfortunately, reusable code also means reusable vulnerabilities, and the bad guys are increasingly turning to attacking open-source. In a recent study by CA Veracode, a whopping 88% of Java applications had at least one flaw in an open-source library, leaving application security managers faced with the challenging question: how can we keep innovating quickly without introducing vulnerabilities into our code base?
The solution is multi-faceted – part education, part technology, part process change. Join us for our Virtual Summit, The Open Source Conundrum: Managing your Risk, as we dig into all the pieces of this solution.
Andrew Kanikuru - Senior Digital Sales @ Veracode & Nabil Bousselham - Principal Consultant Solutions Architect @ Veracode
Join Andrew Kanikuru - Senior Digital Sales @ Veracode & Nabil Bousselham - Principal Consultant Solutions Architect @ Veracode - to discuss how fine the line is between a blessing and a curse in terms of Open Source Code Security.
In the technologically advanced era that we live in, organisations rely on fast software delivery to gain the competitive advantage. Using open source and 3rd party components in the SDLC can help companies be first to market with new services and solutions. When you consider that almost 93% of organisations use external snippets of code during development, not only is this now the norm but it is fast becoming best practice.
But what about the risks?
Although using Open Source code allows fast deployment, faster doesn’t always mean better. As the origin of the code is unknown it means it is unsecure. The largest data breach in history occurred due to an exploitation in Open Source Code, leading to huge financial payouts.
Fast & Secure - how does an organisation juggle these positive outcomes to best enable themselves to get to market quickly and safely?
Join our live webinar on the 25th of July to find out how.
