How Can the Gov. & Education Sector Improve Its Grades in Software Sec. Health?
Eric Wassenaar, Veracode Sr. Account Executive, SLED / Jason Phillips, Veracode Sr. Solution Architect
About this talk
It’s been a challenging year for several industries, including the government and education sector. Government organizations had to pivot their operations to a digital model and schools were forced to decide between hybrid or remote learning programs for their students.
These digital transformations have made application security (AppSec) more important than ever. But, in our recent State of Software Security v11 (SOSS) report, we found that compared to other industries, the government and education sector has the highest percentage of applications with security flaws, the second-slowest fix rate, and the second-longest median time to fix flaws.
Join us as we further examine SOSS findings pertaining to the government and education sector. We will discuss:
• Current AppSec trends that are impacting the government and education sector.
• Common flaw types found in the sectors’ applications.
• Steps that organizations can take to nurture their applications and improve their security health.
