Innovations Driving the Future of Software Security

From communication and education to commerce and healthcare — every organization, institution, agency, and corporation is transforming digitally — and the transformation continues to accelerate. With more than 50 percent of people worldwide now online, software has become the backbone of modern business and society — and one of its biggest sources of risk. Our own data illustrates both the growth and the risk. In Veracode’s State of Software Security Volume 11 report, we analyzed 130,000 apps and found that 76 percent of applications have at least one vulnerability. As companies transform through software, the digital attack surface is growing exponentially, and fixing defects in software must keep pace with this reality.

Watch Veracode founder and Chief Technology Officer, Chris Wysopal and guest speaker Forrester Research Principal Analyst, Sandy Carielli in a live webinar as they discuss the trends and innovations shaping software security, and how companies must strategize for this future and prepare their developers to integrate security into their workflows.

  • Die Lebenszeit und Nutzung von Open Source Libraries Sep 29 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Julian Totzek-Hallhuber, Principal Solutions Architect
    Software besteht heute selten vollständig aus ausschließlich selbstgeschriebenem Code und wird häufig aus anderen Quellen „zusammengebaut“. Dieser wiederverwendbare Code und die Funktionalität, auf die Entwickler immer mehr angewiesen sind, bringt auch wiederverwendbare Schwachstellen mit sich. Diese Open-Source-Basis, auf der die meisten Apps jetzt aufbauen, verhält sich nicht wie ein solides Betonfundament, sondern eher wie ein sich bewegender Haufen aus Kies und Sand. Diese Bibliotheken unterliegen einem ständigen Wandel, einschließlich ihres Sicherheitsstatus. Hören Sie sich diesen Vortrag über, die Fakten und Analysen in unserem neuesten Bericht über den Zustand der Softwaresicherheit von frei verfügbaren Bibliotheken an. Wir haben für diesen Bericht über 301.000 Open-Source-Bibliotheken analysiert.

    Nehmen Sie an diesem Webinar teil und erfahren Sie mehr über:
    - Die beliebtesten Bibliotheken mit Sicherheitslücken
    - Wie Entwickler Bibliotheken für ihre Anwendungen auswählen
    - Wie oft Open-Source-Bibliotheken aktualisiert werden und warum das wichtig ist
    - Was hält Entwickler davon ab, Sicherheitslücken in Open-Source-Code zu beheben?
    - Umfang der Fixes, die erforderlich sind, um Schwachstellen in Open-Source-Code zu beheben
    - Best Practices für die Verwaltung von Open-Source-Bibliotheken
  • Le developement applicatif à l'ère des bibliothèques Open Source Sep 21 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Nabil Bousselham, Sr. Principal Solution Architect chez Veracode
    Les logiciels d'aujourd'hui sont rarement entièrement composés de code propriétaire et sont plus souvent « assemblés » à partir d'autres sources y compris des frameworks et des Bibliothèques Open source.

    Nos recherches et le rapport State of Software Security v11 de cette année ont révélé que près d'un tiers des applications ont plus de vulnérabilités dans les bibliothèques open source tierces que dans leur code propriétaire. Conclusion: Si vous évaluez uniquement la sécurité de votre code propriétaire, votre surface d'attaque est bien plus grande que vous ne le pensez. Mais comment pouvez-vous aborder de manière réaliste la sécurité de tant de code que vous n'avez pas écrit en interne ? Assistez à cette session avec Nabil Bousselham, Sr. Principal Solution Architect chez Veracode, pour en savoir plus sur nos données sur les risques open source et sur les bonnes pratiques de les gérer.

    Rejoignez cette session pour apprendre:
    - Les bibliothèques vulnérables les plus populaires
    - Comment les développeurs choisissent les bibliothèques pour leurs applications
    - À quelle fréquence les bibliothèques open source sont mises à jour et pourquoi cela est important
    - Qu'est-ce qui empêche les développeurs de résoudre les failles de sécurité dans le code open source
    - La portée des correctifs requis pour corriger les vulnérabilités dans le code open source
    - Bonnes pratiques pour la gestion des bibliothèques open source
  • Tuning the AppSec Engine, Part 3 Sep 15 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    John Smith, Manager, Solution Architects, EMEA and APAC, Veracode and Amanda Lee, EMEA and APJ Services Manager, Veracode
    In today’s increasingly digital world, companies of all sizes and in all industries are creating applications faster than ever to remain relevant and keep up with customer demands. But as companies race to release new software, are they taking the time to properly secure their applications? Our recent State of Software Security report found that 76 percent of applications have at least one flaw on initial scan. If security flaws and vulnerabilities are not remediated, cybercriminals can gain entry into an organization’s systems and steal confidential data. That’s why it’s so important to have a comprehensive application security (AppSec) program in place.
    Creating an AppSec program isn’t as challenging as you might think – especially with Veracode by your side. In fact, forming and maturing an AppSec program is a lot like building and maintaining a car engine. You have to put in a little elbow grease in the beginning, but it’s a smooth ride after that.
    In the final webinar, we will teach you how to maintain your AppSec program with monitoring and reporting tactics.
  • Speed vs. Risk: Effective Software Security Doesn’t Choose Sep 9 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rey Bango: Sr. Director, Developer and Security Relations
    What makes software security effective? Do you have to sacrifice software security speed to truly reduce risk? What if you quickly find a lot of security flaws, but they aren't accurate, or you don't know how to fix them? Ultimately, effective software security needs to integrate and automate both accurate testing and remediation into developer workflows, and train developers to avoid security flaws in the first place – otherwise, you are choosing between speed and risk. Join Rey to get details on what good looks like in software security, including:

    • Automated, integrated, and accurate security testing
    • Prescriptive vs. descriptive security findings
    • Engaging and relevant security training
  • Building the AppSec Engine, Part 2 Sep 2 2021 10:00 am UTC 60 mins

  • Security Labs - The Ultimate in Shift Left Aug 26 2021 4:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    Tim Jarrett, Sr. Director of Product Management; Dave Ferguson, Solution Architect; Jason Lane, Product Marketing Manager
    One of the biggest challenges in producing secure software is helping developers become more skilled and confident at writing secure code. It's not something that is normally taught in Computer Science programs today. You can offer video-based training, but when it comes to learning there’s no substitute for hands-on practice – and making it fun! Come learn how organizations are using Veracode Security Labs to teach developers secure coding techniques using live applications - by exploiting real vulnerabilities then fixing the code and seeing the results. You’ll also hear stories of successful rollouts and learn what’s coming next in Security Labs.
  • How Much Open Source Code Is in Your Software? It’s More Than You Think Aug 19 2021 4:00 pm UTC 42 mins
    Brittany O'Shea, Product Marketing Manager at Veracode
    Developers are being asked to push out more software —and in shorter periods of time —than ever before. In turn, they are increasingly relying on open source libraries, which allow them to add functionality to their code without having to build it from scratch. As a result, software today is rarely completely made of first-party code, and is more often “assembled” from other sources. In fact, our most recent State of Software Security report found that a typical Java application is made up of 97 percent open source code. And that open source code is leaving organizations vulnerable to cyberattacks. Our State of Software Security: Open Source Edition report found that 70 percent of applications have a security flaw in an open source library. However, simply using open source libraries isn’t a security threat to the business. The real problem is not knowing that what you’re using contains vulnerabilities and that they’re exploitable in your application. Software composition analysis solutions can help, but many are coming up short. The main challenges with current solutions are that they are based on the NVD database, which is frequently not up to date, they are hard to manage and scale, and developers are not empowered to fix security issues.

    Join this session to find out:

    •Trends in open source library use
    •Best practices in software composition analysis
    •How to continue using open source libraries without getting bogged down with security tests
  • Components of the AppSec Engine, Part 1 Aug 19 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Fulya Sengil, Sr Solution Architect, Veracode
    If you're planning to build a car engine, you'd probably start by researching instructions, collecting the necessary parts, and establishing a process to ensure that the build goes smoothly. The same goes for building an application security (AppSec) program. You'd need to figure out what AppSec tests you want to include, how you're going to incorporate them into the software development lifecycle (SDLC), and what process you're going to use – waterfall, agile, or DevOps.

    But you don't have to figure out how to build a car engine, or AppSec program, by yourself. Join us for part one of our three-part webinar series for tips on building, maturing, and maintaining an AppSec program. We will examine the various AppSec testing types – static analysis, software composition analysis, dynamic analysis, interactive application security testing, and penetration testing – determine which tests you should start with, and where they should go in the SDLC. We will then explore the various methodology types and modern application architecture.
  • Secure Coding's Impact on an Organisation – Panel Discussion Aug 10 2021 9:00 am UTC 62 mins
    John Smith Veracode, Michael Man, Srimant Achayra TCS, Adam Casey i3Secure
    Software security is about more than avoiding costly breaches. It’s about giving your organization the confidence to create, innovate, and bring solutions to market … before the competition. And the key to software security today? Education.

    When it comes to software, developers are really the only ones in an organisation who can fix the vulnerabilities in their code. Yet most developers don’t have the training they need to identify or remediate vulnerabilities, and security teams don't have the bandwidth to train them. This leaves the development team with ineffective training content that is too long, irrelevant to an organization's tech stack, or not engaging.

    Join us for a panel discussion hosted by Director of Solution Architects at Veracode John Smith, joined by DevSecOps practitioner Michael Mann, Srimant Achayra, Global Head Enterprise Vulnerability Management CoE, TCS Cyber Security and Adam Casey, ex-CISO, now Director Cyber Security and Data Protection at consultancy i3Secure.
    We will be discussing:

    - Why developers need training on secure coding
    - Why the best approach in an AppSec strategy in addition to scanning includes avoiding creating flaws in the first place
    - How shifting left in the development process is a route to competitive advantage
    - Best practice in designing customized AppSec education based on organization’s unique tech stack and business objectives
  • The Value of Application Security - Getting AppSec Executive Buy In Aug 3 2021 10:00 am UTC 43 mins
    John Smith, Director, Solution Architects EMEA & APJ, Veracode
    How can you demonstrate the value of adopting or expanding your organisation’s AppSec program when there’s a growing need for all types of cybersecurity, as well as intense competition for your critical tech budget? Simply put, you must convince decision-makers that your program — and their money — will lead to better business outcomes, a higher level of efficiency, lower costs, and improved return on investment (ROI).

    Key takeaways:
    - Learn how to make the case for AppSec in a way that resonates with executives
    - Understand which AppSec metrics executives will care about
    - Find out how to tie AppSec to corporate goals and priorities

    Attend this session to get tips and best practices on making the case for AppSec to the board
  • The Life and Times of Open Source Libraries Recorded: Jul 29 2021 33 mins
    Tom Smith / Sr Solution Architect
    Software today is rarely completely made of first-party code, and is more often “assembled” from other sources. This reusable code and functionality that developers have become more reliant on also comes with reusable vulnerabilities, and this open-source foundation most apps are now built upon is not like a solid, cement house foundation, but more like a shifting pile of gravel and sand. These libraries are in a constant state of flux, including their security status. Join this talk to get the data and analysis of our latest State of Software Security report, we analysed over 301,000 open-source libraries.

    Join this session to learn:
    - The most popular vulnerable libraries
    - How developers choose libraries for their applications
    - How often open-source libraries are updated, and why that matters
    - What is holding developers back from addressing security vulnerabilities in open-source code
    - The scope of the fixes required to address vulnerabilities in open-source code
    - Best practices for managing open-source libraries
  • VeraTalks: The Future of Cybersecurity Regulations Recorded: Jul 29 2021 31 mins
    Chris Wysopal, Veracode Founder and CTO
    In 1998, Veracode founder Chris Wysopal testified before Congress on the dangers of vulnerable software, famously reporting that he and his hacker friends could “take down the entire Internet in 30 minutes.” And, it took 23 years, but the government is finally responding.

    The Biden administration just released an executive order on cybersecurity that includes new security requirements for software vendors selling software to the U.S. government. There are also indications that these practices will make their way into the private sector. The order requires the development of pilot programs to develop ratings and labeling for the security of consumer software, including IoT devices. It also mandates the development of a Cyber Safety Review Board that will operate like an NTSB for cyber, investigating attacks and sharing information on how and why they happened.

    Just as we originally built cars without thinking about safety, we started building software years ago without thinking about security. In both cases, the risk eventually became very evident, and the government got involved with regulations. Where do we go from here? This executive order is more far-reaching and prescriptive than any cybersecurity legislation we’ve seen – how will this affect cybersecurity regulations of the future? Join our new VeraTalk with Chris Wysopal as he explores the future of cybersecurity regulations.
  • The Right AppSec Partner Today Keeps the Regulator Away Recorded: Jul 15 2021 27 mins
    Julian Totzek-Hallhuber, Principal Solutions Architect
    Transactions across Europe are progressively changing to digital. Figures show in 2020, the value of transactions reached £703.3 bn with the UK estimated to be responsible for at least 25 percent of this figure. Needless to say, the software supporting these payment systems must be reliable and secure. Without secure payment platforms, payment transactions and data could be compromised.

    Join this Session to learn:

    •How static analysis maps against PCI requirements
    •How to determine which software security controls and features best serveyour organisations specific business needs
    •The importance of automated AppSec as a means of keeping up with the faster and more iterative payment systems of today
    •Best practices in setting up an effective application security program with consideration for both traditional and modern payment platforms and evolving development practices

  • VeraTalks: Tackling Developer Security Training Recorded: Jun 23 2021 26 mins
    Rey Bango, Veracode Director of Developer Relations
    Most AppSec programs forget that there is only one team that can fix security findings: the development team. While an AppSec strategy based on scanning will help you find flaws, the best approach also avoids creating flaws in the first place. Yet developers often don’t have the training they need to prevent, identify, or remediate code vulnerabilities. Very few university engineering programs include cybersecurity courses, and in a recent ESG survey of cybersecurity professionals, 35% of respondents reported that that less than half of their development teams are participating in formal security training. In addition, security teams often don't have the bandwidth or expertise to teach development teams themselves.
    At the same time, existing training solutions are lengthy, generic, often just plain boring, and produce lackluster results.
    How can organizations enable their development teams with the skills they need to code securely?

    Tune in to our next VeraTalk where Veracode's Director of Developer Relations Rey Bango will be digging into this developer security training conundrum. Don't miss this discussion based on his own experiences with secure coding and security training. He’ll cover:
    • The security skills and know-how developers need today
    • The types of security training that work
    • The role of security champions
    • How the security and development teams can work together to ensure code is create securely from the start

  • What Our Data Tells Us About Open Source Risk: And How to Address It Recorded: Jun 16 2021 21 mins
    Brittany O’Shea, Veracode Senior Product Marketing Manager
    Our research for this year’s State of Software Security v11 report found that almost a third of applications have more security findings in their third-party libraries than in their first-party code. Bottom line: If you are only assessing the security of your first-party code, your attack surface is much bigger than you think. But how can you realistically address the security of so much code you didn’t write in-house? Attend this session with Brittany O’Shea, Veracode senior product marketing manager, to hear more about our data on open source risk, and how to address it.

    You’ll learn:
    • What our new data reveals about the extent and the security third-party code in modern applications
