The final part in the webinar series provides real-world guidance on how to balance application security activities, including both those that are automated and run inline in your CI/CD pipelines, and the out-of-band activities that are traditionally executed manually. Implementing security gates at strategic places in the CI/CD pipeline to break the build when critical and high vulnerabilities are found keeps teams informed and reduces communication overhead. Just as there must be continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment, there also must be continuous collaboration, and continuous communication across development, security, and operations teams.
Developers are often taught to emphasize functionality over security, and many developers aren’t security experts. For this reason, it’s crucial to ensure they stay aware of the risks of vulnerable code. But training materials are often static and inconvenient to access, using the internet for guidance isn’t consistent or reliable, and remediation advice from tools isn’t necessarily project-aware or product-specific. And unfortunately, security experts are often seen as an impediment to business goals, and they may not be experienced developers. The third part of the webinar series covers developer enablement and avoiding defect management overload.
There’s risk in any M&A transaction but having the right software due diligence approach can help mitigate that risk. If software is a large part of the deal, understanding the legal, security, code and design quality risks in the target’s codebase is key. Do you know the right questions to ask?
Join this live Synopsys webinar to create or teak your due diligence playbook. We’ll cover:
•Understanding the software due diligence landscape
•The risks to look out for (and why)
•What questions to ask in the process
•How to choose the right audit partner

When presenting the rationale for a new cultural practice such as DevSecOps, the first question from leadership tends to be along the lines of “where are the savings coming from?” With that in mind, there are four pillars of DevSecOps where we can emphasize efficiency as it aligns with a return on investment: strategy, people, process, and technology.
Development organizations continue to implement security earlier in the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. And the benefits of integrating application security (AppSec) tools in the CI/CD pipeline increase the further you shift left in the process. But software security group leaders need to know where AppSec tools should go in the CI/CD workflow, as well as their purposes in different phases. This first part of the webinar series answers some essential questions:
• How do you pick the right application security tools for your CI/CD pipeline?
• Where should you integrate your tools in the pipeline?
• How should you configure the tools?

Application Security trends and challenges in moving from DevOps to DevSecOps
Introducing IAST and Seeker
Q&A - come prepared with your questions and we’ll answer live on the webinar.
Static application security testing (SAST) is critical for uncovering and eliminating issues in proprietary code. However, over 60% of the code in an average application today is composed of open source components. SAST isn’t designed to find open source vulnerabilities (CVEs) or identify open source licenses. And manually maintaining a repository of approved open source components for developers is inefficient and time consuming. That’s where software composition analysis (SCA) comes in.
Join Utsav Sanghani, product manager, as he explores the benefits of bringing SAST and SCA together. He’ll explain why using an SCA tool to scan open source dependencies is as imperative to a software development strategy as using SAST to test proprietary code. He’ll also demonstrate how developers, by combining SAST and SCA analysis in the IDE, can address issues holistically as they code, saving time and increasing productivity so they can deliver secure, high-quality software faster.
