How to Ensure Your Applications are Secure by Design

Presented by

Chris Wysopal, Co-Founder and CTO, CA Vercode

About this talk

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.
