From Zero to Maturity: Setting AppSec Goals & First Steps

A mature application security program might seem intimidating to some organizations. But it’s important to remember that there are an established series of steps most organizations take when developing an application security program. The keys are to start small, have clear goals, keep things simple, prove the value, and then mature the program over time.

We’ve worked with numerous companies on their path from zero AppSec to a mature, comprehensive program. To shed light on how to get started with application security, and on what good looks like, this session will outline the first steps most of our customers take to develop a mature application security program.

Key takeaways:
- Get best practices on setting goals for your AppSec program
- Find out the best place to start when kicking off your AppSec program
- What does good look like in AppSec? Learn what to strive for

  • Creating a Bridge Between Development and Security Apr 28 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Chris Kirsch | Director, Product Marketing at Veracode
    As security testing has "shifted left," the roles of and relationship between the security and development teams have changed. In the past, security testing was solely in the realm of the security team. Today, that responsibility has shifted to the development team, with the security team taking on more of an oversight role. With this shift, each team has to develop new skills, take on new processes, gain new understanding, and build new relationships.

    Join this session to learn:

    What security professionals today need to know about modern software development
    The best practices for building trust between security and development teams
    How to integrate security scanning into the development pipeline in a way that both decreases risk and increases productivity
  • Taking a Holistic Approach to Understanding & Managing Your Information Risk Apr 15 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carol Rogert, Security Program Manager, Veracode and Joe Vadakkan, Global Practice Leader, Cloud Security, Optiv
    How does a business create and scale an effective, comprehensive security program? For most IT organizations, there are an unwieldy number of security solutions to evaluate, onboard, and ultimately manage. Join services and implementation experts from Veracode and Optiv as they discuss the benefits of taking a holistic approach to assessing and managing information risk across an organization. During this webinar they will share perspectives and best practices drawn from their experiences onboarding security solutions for customers. They will trace the evolution of both network security and application security and discuss the critical role of both in developing and implementing a risk management strategy that addresses compliance and regulatory requirements while protecting customer trust and brand equity.

  • How to Accelerate Open Source Adoption, Not Open Source Risk Recorded: Mar 26 2020 39 mins
    Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager at Veracode
    In a recent blinded survey by Red Hat to more than 950 global IT leaders, 69 percent said Open Source Software was very or extremely important to the organisation’s overall enterprise infrastructure software plans. With the advantages of speed, agility, and cost-reduction, open-source software libraries are here to stay.

    However, with the delineated ownership in open source development can introduce new and sometimes dangerous software risks to an enterprise. It’s vital to have a strategy and framework in place to manage open source libraries and components. Otherwise, the road to digital transformation will likely be paved with frustrations, problems, and even failures

    Open source software risks revolve around three key areas: visibility, security, and governance.

    In this session we will help you understand these factors and how to formulate a stronger cybersecurity strategy that protects you from open source risk.
  • Deep-dive on Veracode Static Analysis Pipeline Scan Recorded: Mar 25 2020 47 mins
    Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager, Veracode
    The pace of modern software development continues to accelerate. To confidently ship secure software on time, you need the right scan, at the right time, in the right place. Veracode Static Analysis provides scans that are optimized for when they are leveraged in the SDLC. Our new Pipeline Scan—the first of its kind in the market—delivers rapid feedback to developers—on every build.

    We designed the Pipeline Scan to meet the needs of DevOps engineers; it was shaped by the experiences of EA customers who commit code hundreds to thousands of times a day across their organizations. This new scan integrates into the CI pipeline to offer test results each time code is committed. Teams can break the build if policy-violating flaws are introduced on a commit or net-new security issues are found. Because this scan is performed in-line with existing CI tooling, there is no learning curve for development teams.

    Join us for this deep-dive into the capabilities of this new scan type and learn how you can start using it to enable your developers and advance your AppSec program.

  • Fix What You Find With Developer Engagement Recorded: Mar 12 2020 42 mins
    John Smith | Director, Solution Architects at Veracode
    AppSec programs fail when developers are not engaged or empowered to fix vulnerabilities and security teams are only incentivized to find vulnerabilities but not to fix them. Too often, security teams dictate rather than partner with development teams and have unrealistic expectations. The result is a strained relationship between security and development.

    Join this session to learn:
    •How to help developers fix the security findings
    •How to work with developers to reduce the introduction of new security flaws
    •How to develop a security champions program
  • AppSec Beyond Technology Recorded: Mar 12 2020 46 mins
    Arun Vohra | Services Strategy and Product Manager at Veracode
    Technology alone cannot solve your AppSec challenges, you need to keep people and processes in mind as well. Effective AppSec programs get stakeholders aligned on the vision and execute on a roadmap for the program. But this is easier said than done. Join this session to learn:

    •How to define a program that achieves your goals, which may include risk reduction as well as compliance with internal policies, contractual requirements, laws and regulations.
    •How to scale your AppSec program.
    •How to use metrics to sell the value of AppSec to stakeholders as diverse as senior leadership, developers, and customers.
  • Debunking the AppSec Silver Bullet Myth Recorded: Mar 12 2020 36 mins
    Brittany O'Shea | Product Marketing Manager at Veracode
    There is no AppSec silver bullet. Each analysis type – static analysis, dynamic analysis, software composition analysis, interactive analysis, and penetration testing – has a role to play, and they all work together to fully secure your application layer. The different analysis types have different strengths in finding security issues, and they lend themselves to different stages of the SDLC.
    For instance, we recommend that you shift left to catch issues as early as possible because they are cheaper to fix. However, when scanning only parts of the application, you don’t have the full scope of the application. It’s like providing feedback on one chapter of a book without knowing the other chapters. You can provide feedback if it makes sense, but you can’t assess it in the context of all of the other chapters. The same is true for application security. That’s why you need to scan parts early but also scan when the application is fully assembled.

    Join this session to find out:
    •The strengths and weaknesses of the different AppSec analysis types
    •Where each analysis type fits in the SDLC
    •Why pipeline integrations are critical
  • DevSecOps Done Right Recorded: Mar 12 2020 47 mins
    Paul Farrington | CTO at Veracode
    Application security is not a one-and-done project, and there is no AppSec silver bullet. Application security is an ongoing program that assesses software at different stages of the development lifecycle in different ways. In this way, DevOps becomes DevSecOps. However, there are a few common obstacles that often hinder AppSec progress. Tune into this session to learn how to overcome the following:

    •Developers not empowered to fix what they find
    •AppSec solutions that are hard to manage and scale
    •Security teams with limited bandwidth to manage an AppSec program
  • Introducing the Next Generation of Veracode Static Analysis Recorded: Mar 5 2020 36 mins
    Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager, Veracode
    The right scan, at the right time, in the right place.

    To meet the demands of modern software development, application security scans must be fast and they must be accurate. For companies that innovate through software, effectively managing application security risk requires the right scan, at the right time, in the right place. In response to our customers’ adoption of DevSecOps practices, we have introduced the next generation of Veracode Static Analysis. Built on our SaaS platform, the Veracode Static Analysis product family now includes three different scans types: an IDE Scan that provides focused, real-time feedback to developers as they code; a first-in-market Pipeline Scan than runs on every build, providing feedback on the code at the team level; and a Policy Scan that provides a full evaluation of an application against security policy before releasing it. Join us to learn how these three scans work together to strengthen application security programs.
  • Veracode Static Analysis: The Right Scan, at the Right Time Recorded: Mar 5 2020 29 mins
    Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager at Veracode
    In a recent study conducted by GitHub to more than 4,000 global developers, 43% of developers report they deploy on-demand or multiple times a day, and nearly the same percentage, 41%, deploy between once a day and once a month. To meet the demands of modern software development, application security must be fast, and it must be accurate. Traditional Static Analysis tools run by security teams late in the testing phase no longer meet the needs of organizations.

    Effective management of application security risk requires the right scan, at the right time, in the right place. In response to our customers’ adoption of DevSecOps practices, we have introduced the new Veracode Static Analysis. Built on our SaaS platform, the Veracode Statics Analysis product family now includes three different scans types: the IDE Scan provides focused, real-time feedback to developers as they code; the first-in-market Pipeline Scan runs on every build providing feedback on the code at the team level; and the Policy Scan provides a full evaluation of applications against security policy before releasing the software.

    Join us to learn how these three scans work together to strengthen your application security program.

  • AppSec in 2020: What’s on the Horizon Recorded: Jan 14 2020 45 mins
    Paul Farrington CTO, Veracode & Adam Reyland, Regional Marketing Specialist, Veracode
    We saw some positive changes in AppSec in 2019. Organisations are increasingly focused on not just finding security vulnerabilities, but fixing them, and prioritising the flaws that put them most as risk. But we’ve got a long way to go; we still find that the vast majority of software (83% in fact) contains at least one vulnerability on initial scan.

    How will things evolve in 2020? Join this webinar where we’ll discuss AppSec themes we expect to emerge in 2020, including:

    •Using security champions on development teams to act as a force multiplier for the security team
    •Optimising AppSec with the right metrics
    •DevSecOps going mainstream
    •Shifting focus from finding security-related defects to fixing them
    •Regulations affecting AppSec practices
  • AppSec: Beyond Scanning Recorded: Dec 12 2019 37 mins
    Chris Eng, Chief Research Officer, Veracode
    We consistently come across organizations that think they can check the AppSec box if they’re scanning their code, or who are quantifying success by how many scans they can run a day, rather than by how many flaws they were able to fix. Unfortunately, you can’t scan your way to secure code.

    At this session will walk you through three critical steps an organization must take beyond scanning to develop more secure code: educating your developers so they learn secure coding skills, fixing the vulnerable code that’s found, and scaling the AppSec program to cover your entire application landscape.

    Key takeaways:
    - Learn how to move your AppSec program from a find focus to a fix focus
    - Find out why training plays a critical role in AppSec
    - Understand what it takes to scale your AppSec program
  • Creating Security Champions to Improve Your DevOps Security Posture Recorded: Dec 10 2019 43 mins
    Paul Farrington, EMEA CTO at Veracode | Calvin Mills, Software Engineer | Jamie Keegan, QA Test Lead
    What if I told you that you could improve the rate at which you fix your security issues up to 88% faster, without spending money on expensive consultants or blinky lights. 'Security Champions' could be the answer.
    Gartner predicts 3.4 million unfilled security roles by 2022 - simply because there are not enough expertise. DevOps teams in particular are leading the way in identifying Security Champions to help promote secure coding and reduce friction within teams. Rather than relying exclusively on a centralised security team, that can’t scale - we can go faster by nurturing security advocates in each development team. We talk about how to harness the existing talent in your teams and provide insights into how you can force-multiply the effect of security across your organisation, in a way that is likely to be received positively by your development teams.
  • State of Software Security: Peer Benchmarking to Evolve Your AppSec Program Recorded: Dec 4 2019 26 mins
    Annie Znamierowski, Sr Security Program Mgr, Veracode
    Metrics are essential to understanding any AppSec Program.
